Please help resolve the issue.

We (on the forum) do not know about external VPS services; they were blocked from the Market or not.
Besides, I had similar issue with one external VPS provider in past but those VPS provider installed additional security feature to all VPS users on his server so I had to change VPS provider because of that ...

So, more details are in this thread https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/388871 (which you created in Fenruary this year about same issue).

Well the issue was never fixed back in Febuary. I just assumed it was because of Zomro VPS and stopped using them.    However now I am using a different VPS providor and similar problem.

Why doesn't mql5 publish a list of approved VPS providors apart from their own.  Why block the whole IP block instead of certain users?

Many users are facing similar issues and there is no known fix.  Instead we are being forced to switch from VPS to VPS to  more expensive VPS providors.

 

The service desk replied (in past) the following:
" The entire Zomro provider with subnets is blocked for massive fraudulent activities from its subnets. "
So, it may be the following: your external VPS is the part of subnet of Zomro (without "Zomro" name).

Yes, they are not published the list of banned external VPS providers because those providers may read it and change the name or any.
And they are not published the list of approved VPS because one VPS approved only: MQL5 VPS; and any other external VPS should not be consider for anything
(because those external VPS'es can do anything because they are not part of MQL5).

-----------------

So, use MQL5 VPS in case you are using EA/robot or the signal subscription.
And use your home computer for indicators (manual trading for example).

Thanks Sergey for the reply.   I know you are trying to help but we will never know the exact cause of the issue.   PowerVPS is a totally different company from Zomro and has nothing to do with them.

I refuse to pay mql5 expensive vps prices and will  buy EAs directly from sellers so I can run them on any VPS of my choice.  We users have no voice or say  with metaquotes but maybe you moderators can raise this issue affecting many users.   Banning one VPS providor, then another, then another is not professional way of dealing with some problem from a small number of users.  Can you imagine Microfsoft selling some software and restricting that it only runs on its own brand of PCs or not telling the customers on which PC brands the software can run on.  Users will have to find out by trial and error.    Thye would be sued by fedreal bodies immediately.

There are many 3rd party VPS providers that apply firewall policies that can impact access to the MetaQuotes services, and it is not necessarily MetaQuotes that is blocking the access.

There have been many threads on this forum, which I have personally answered to about this issue and I myself have had the problem once too with my own VPS provider.

So, please don't just automatically assume that MetaQuotes is the cause of the problem. It may well be the VPS provider's own firewall policy that is blocking it, or it may even be the operating system setup that is misconfigured,

So, please take the time to carry the proper technical investigations into the network traffic being generated before presuming the fault to be one-sided.

I think - it is related to the following: how you/we are selecting the right VPS provider.
Because there are a lot of VPS providers. A lot (more reputable or less reputable ...  and all of them are different companies).
And they do not tell to their clients about what they are doing with their VPS'es, which firewall or security or DEP they installed, and so on.
And all of those situations are the matter of the following: how to select the external VPS provider (some traders can do it; some other traders are having the difficultes in that).

------------------

My examples.

1. You wrote: "PowerVPS is a totally different company from Zomro and has nothing to do with them."

We never know.
I had VPS from Germany and one from France, and I had only one issue with them: how to pay to them from Russia ...
And they told me that I can pay by Russian rubles ... to Germany? They say "yes" ... so, they are not from Germany, right?

2. The other example.
I had VPS and I could not install my purchases (same error with you).
They (VPS support) told me the following:
"Are your Metatrader working? Not a problem? Everything is fine? But if you need to install some "purchases" so it means that you want to do something special with our VPS located on our server. Yes, we can made a special VPS for you ... for special price ...".

3. I came to the other VPS but I wanted to test everything, and I asked for free testing period.
Yes, many VPS companies are providing free test period.

------------------

And all of those situations (and your situation as well) are the matter of the following: how to select the external VPS provider
related to the price, features, limitations (incl unknown/hidden limitations) and so on.
And MetaQuotes company will not help you/me/us in all those situations, and the sharing experience about "good VPS provider" or "bad VPS provider" is impossible on this forum because any advertisement of any VPS provider is prohibited here.

------------------

So, test VPS providers by yourself using free testing period, and do not attach yourself to one VPS provider only (because there are a lot of them, and all of them are looking for you in the meaning of the money sorry).
