If your broker is a Pass through type, he doesn't care what you have in your trading folder. The real problem with a Broker provided VPS is that they can close it and you can't get to your program.
If you fall below the minimum standard, they have every right to close your VPS. How do you feel about that? That's why professional traders use a good 3rd party VPS, you never know what is going to happen in the market.
But honestly, if you live in a place with reliable internet service, reliable in that it never goes down, buying a cheap computer and running your own home system is cheaper and just as good. VPS services do go down, even with their battery backups. And there are ways to back up your home internet with a data service from a cell phone provider.
The nice thing about a VPS is that you're free to travel, move or anything and your income is still working and secure. That's worth $29.00 anytime.
However, to answer your direct question, no I have never used a broker provided VPS and for the above stated reasons, I never will.
