I have some trouble to install Metatrader 4 or 5.
I am under a proxy, during the installation I would like to specify the address AND the port of the proxy.
During the installation I didn't see any field to specify this number, it is plan to support proxy port?
Please read the documentation :
IP address and server port number separated by a colon are specified here.
In my environment installation goes without problems, it probably uses the proxy defined by the IE (you can probably get this verified by service desk). I don't believe that you can specify it.
However, from version to version there are problems with proxy, it simply doesn't work (although installation works), so before upgrading to a new release, first check if the new release works with proxy.
EDIT: I just found this info, so you can try it out:
'You can force individual applications to use proxies, even if the applications themselves don't support proxies, by using tools such FreeCAP or Socksify.'
Well, i installed 3 different instances of MT4 b670 (Admiral, Alpari and MQ) approx a month ago and had the 'Proxy is not suitable' issue again, i don't remember how i solved it but it worked in the end (clean install in portable mode?). There was never a problem with installation.
I am not using MT5 anymore, but i believe b965 works. I haven't tested MT5 b975.
MT4 issues started in May, with b646 which didn't work at all, to quote myself:

We recommend anyone who has long been using 32-bit Wine for MetaTrader 5 due to the past incompatibility with the 64-bit terminal to upgrade Wine to the latest 64-bit version and re-install MetaTrader 5 in 64 bits.
Besides, make sure to set the Wine compatibility mode to at least Windows 7 instead of the default Windows XP. No more updates for Windows XP/2003/Vista will be released.

Update Wine to at least 3.0, if that doesn't solve the problem get winetricks and install winhttp library.
You could probably insert the winhttp from winecfg as well.
