MFP on a remote server with always on?
« on: Tue, 23 March, 2010, 14:02 »
Hi,
does anybody run MFP on a hosting remote server with always on from windows scheduler or specific software that checks it?

Any experiences?

Hi tpanos,
I run MFpro in 24/7 mode and use a small script which checks logfiles. If script detects no action in logfiles for 2 hours, if restarts MFPro. This current version of MFPro runs solid as a rock, but restarting MFPro helps in case API was down.

Do not use a hosting server, but a dedicated computer at home.

Hi pm_sam
I am in the phase of research to host MF in a VPS server.
Are you still running on a host server. Is it ok?
Is It a Win 2003 or 2008 server?
Is it a virtual server running on Virtuoso or Microsoft virtualization platform?
Are you satisfied with speed and stability?
Can you please publish the hosting provider URL?

Thank you in advance for your time.

Best Regards,

Theodore

Hi,

I now have it working on a 2003 server but the performance doesn't seem to be as good and my home pc.  It keeps stalling for a second or 2 when updating prices in-running.  Any help would be good.

Cheers

Hi,
I am trying to setup a Windows VPS 2003 server.
Installation is OK.

When I start MFP, after user name and password input, MFP reports:

"LOGIN RESTRICTED LOCATION"
"Current BetFair Status Online"

I am not online. Running MF locally is OK.

Any ideas?

Best Regards,
Theodore

I was thinking that as VPS is in US there is an IP restriction for sites like BetFair.
As all other apps installed succesfully...

Best Regarsd,

Theodore

Yes, there is no access to the BetFair services from US as well as from France.

Regarding the server performance.
For Windows 2003 server platform (and without using the MS Office) it's 512 MB RAM requirement for running MF pro. You have to double the RAM for 2008 Windows server platform. To increase performance try to switch off all unnecessary services and applications that usually are on for VPS servers - IIS, mail/ftp servers, etc.

I too am getting the "Login Restricted Location"message when trying to log in from a VPS which I am assured is a UK server.


Any ideas how to overcome or investigate this ?

Enter your VPS ip address.

Hi 1oser

I have been looking for something like this for a long time.  However, my computing skills are not that advanced.  How do I run the script file?

Thanks

Rocco ...

So i'm the only user of the pc and have set the desktop shortcut to auto login

First generate command line from setting.

right click properties on the desk top short cut and make it look something like this.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\MarketFeeder Pro 7\feeder7.exe" kajdajslda** ahdajskd* 1 "profilename"

Apply & Ok .. now if you double click the link it should go straight into MFP.

next copy the code I from earlier and paste into notepad ... save as ... select "all files" then change the file from .txt to something like runmfp.bat

next add runmfp.bat to windows scheduler and set to run every 5 minutes.

Please change the .lnk file to be the part of your short cut.
