How do I select a RDP client for my remote access device?
For MacOSX, iPhone/iPad, Android devices: search for Microsoft Remote Desktop app in iTunes or Google Play.
There still have alternative RDP clients for mobile device and MacOSX, but since Microsoft has it for free (it was not the case few years ago) then the official Microsoft client is the best option.

How can I import my NinjaTrader indicators/strategies/data base/… ?
To import NinjaTrader indicators, I will recommend the standard procedure: find the original .zip, and import them on your VPS.
You will have a clean NinjaTrader installation on your VPS. If you indicators/strategies/templates/… came from a web site, as futures.io or NinjaTrader official forum:
– open Google Chrome on your VPS, connect to your web site, find the .zip, and download it
– open a Windows Explorer window on your local machine
-open a Windows Explorer window on your VPS
– select the files you want to copy from your local machine, then <Ctrl+C>
– switch to your VPS window
– go on the Windows Explorer of your VPS, and <CTRL-V>
– your files will be copied from your local machine to the remote one. Then you just have to launch NinjaTrader from your VPS.
What is the latency to data feed servers ?

Do I need a second license for my trading front end or my data feed?
Usually trading software is not licenced to run on several servers or PCs in parallel. The license can also be tied to your hardware. Please contact your software vendor for details.

It depends on the rules and firewalls that your employer uses to protect the local network. Most companies use proxy servers and do only allow connections via port 80 (http) and port 443 (https).
