Hello,

It would be nice to use a http-proxy server togather with the MyfxbookEA.dll.

It cannot connect because I'm behind a Firewall/Proxy. Mateatrader itself works fine.
But the Publisher from MT4 and this DLL seems to be not using the Proxy-Settings.

Thanks!

Edit: also FTP Active Mode is required.

Hi SniperNCE.

The EA is designed to work with firewalls, since it uses port 80. If you're able to browse the web, the EA should be working with no issues.

Ok Thanks for the answer. I can browser the Web it works all fine, when i define a http proxy server in my browser settings.

I followed this manual: https://www.myfxbook.com/help/connect-metatrader-ea

I get this error:
13:57:11 Myfxbook USDJPY,M15: Error: Can't send request
13:58:02 Myfxbook USDJPY,M15: uninit reason 5

When I look into netstat, it tries to connect directly without using the proxy server:
validation.myfxbook.com:http SYN_GESENDET

Have you configured a proxy for your LAN connections? It should work.

I have to setup the proxy for each application. But the application must support it with like Metatrader itself does (Options/Server/Proxy). I also set up the http_proxy environment variable but your dll seem to be does not support proxy servers because there is no property to define the proxy settings.
For a workaround I can setup a Metatrader with the EA on my Server. It should work there because its directly connected.


Maybe there can be a new EA property in the future called 'proxy_server' or something like this? Just a suggestion.

I have the same issue: behind a company fw.
I can browse the internet and mt4 works having configured the proxy in the server tab, but the EA Myfxbook + the associate dll don't work: it gives me Myfxbook..... :HTTP Error

Found out the reason: watching in TCPView, i've seen that as staff is saying here, the Myfxbook + its dll try to connect through port 80 (http).
Unfortunately my company proxy uses port XYZ and not standart port 80.
With the browser and with MT4 this is not a problem since when you edit the proxy tab you can also specify the port number, but in this case you can't.

Just configure the proxy for the connection (dial up/vpn) and it should work fine.

Sorry, maybe i can't explain well to let you understand my issue. I try again.
Mine is a Company Proxy, managed by the network admin and I can't configure it. All I have is the proxy name and port.
But while in Metatrader you can use the Server/Proxy... panel to tell the platform what the proxy:port is, in your Myfxbook EA you can't and it actually use the proxy but on the default port 80, so it doesn't work. As suggested by member SniperNCE adding to the EA some input parameters like proxy & port should solve the problem.
