Hi traders,

I just started renting an EA for MT4 platform. It required the Autotrading to be active. I click this, all is good. It turns green.
Then I synchronize everything with my MQL5 VPS that I rented.

Now autotrading turns off. In the journal I see "Virtual Hosting: XXXXX automated trading disabled after migration" 
I have tested it without running any EA, but the result is the same.
Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this?

Platform: MT4
Broker: ICMarkets
VPS: MQL5 Rented

Cheers

As soon as you start your copy of MT in VPS, your local copy of MT does automaticaly disable trading. This is done intentionally in order to prevent doubled ("mirrored") trades.

Hm, alright. But once I close my MT4, the VPS still doesn't allow autotrading, since it wasn't set up for that.
Is there any way to bypass this problem? Except for renting a VPS elsewhere.

it IS enabled when you turn off your MT4

the message means that VPS disabled automated trading on your MT4

Thanks for your reply.
So basically what you are saying is that the VPS disabled automated trading on my MT4, so that it doesn't doubletrade? And that the VPS automated trading will still be active after I close my MT4 (even though it says disabled)?

On the VPS hosted MT, automatic trading is always ON. The VPS hosted copy of MT keeps running even when your local copy is shutdown. 'Disabled' is related to the local copy as far as you quote local MT logs.

BTW, you can view VPS logs using context menu command "Journals" for your hosted copy of MT.
