You can also download your broker's dedicated MT4 platform.
This varies from broker to broker. Here are some common ways you may acquire it:

  • The Broker Website - Login to your Client Area and access the file in the Downloads section.
  • Account Opening Email - You may have the email from when you opened your account. You could login into your Webmail on the VPS's Web Browser and save the MT4 setup file via a weblink or an attachment on the email.
  • Use the weblink - You may know the link for the MT4 setup file. You could copy and paste the link into your VPS's Web Browser address bar.
