Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Good day. I create a desktop application using gmap.net

GMap.NET.MapProviders.GMapProvider.UserAgent = "cferreira GMap tool 1.0" GMP.MapProvider = GMap.NET.MapProviders.OpenStreetMapProvider.Instance

However, I get an error 418, please tell me how to make the map display. Other providers such as google yandex and others work. But I would like to work with OpenStreetMap

OpenStreetMap's Tile Usage Policy can be found here. The error that you are seeing suggests that you are not complying with that policy.

If you don't understand the previous sentence, or what the tile usage policy requires you to do, then you'll need to contact your tool provider, in this case gmap.net, about it.

Note that the policy says "OpenStreetMap data is free for everyone to use. Our tile servers are not.". If you're creating some sort of product that relies on accessing OpenStreetMap's tiles then you and your customers can expect to see the error that you are getting.

You are, of course, available to create your own tiles from OpenStreetMap data, or use a third-party provider of tiles.
