ServerMule provides a Highly Available MetaTrader 4 platform called Forex VPS. If there is a failure in the hardware that your server is running on our service will automatically move your Forex VPS to new hardware and restart it. To take full advantage of this you will want to ensure that when your vps is rebooted MetaTrader 4 automatically restarts.
Here is a quick tutorial on configuring our VPS to automatically restart MetaTrader 4 on reboot by using Windows 2003 autologin feature to automatically log on your trader1 user.
The first step is to logon to your vps as the administrator user. Once you have logged into the Forex VPS open up the tweak UI program
All Programs >> NeoSmart Technologies >> TweakUI for Windows >> Tweak UI
Navigate to the Logon >> Autologon option and set the username and password of the user that you run MetaTrader 4 as in this case trader1 .
If you reboot the server the trader1 user will automatically logon and run it’s startup programs. Now you need to configure which programs you want to start. To do this logon to your Forex VPS as the trader1 user and copy the shortcut for the MetaTrader 4 servers that you want to start automatically into the startup directory
You can also see the startup directory from the start menu:
After completing this step when your Forex VPS restarts the Trader1 user will automatically logon and start you MetaTrader 4 application(s). When you log on to your Forex VPS server to connect you need to make sure that you connect to the logged in session to do this you need to ensure that you always add a /admin flag after the ipaddress in your remote desktop connection as you can see in the example below
Alternatively if you use a .RDP file to connect to your server please edit it with a text editor such as notepad and ensure the following line is added to the bottom of the file
