my.anyterm.org offers you an easier way to use Anyterm: rather
than install it on your own systems, you just log in to
my.anyterm.org from a browser and SSH or telnet from there. It's
designed for system administrators and others who want a backup
remote access method that will work from "web-only" internet cafes
or from behind corporate firewalls.
You can join for a year for only £10. That's about US$12.50 or
€11, depending on exchange rate fluctuations. You can pay
using Paypal, which also accepts credit/debit card payments.
Contact us if you'd like to pay by some other means. By joining
my.anyterm.org you'll also be supporting the further development of
Once you've joined, going to my.anyterm.org will present you with
a "desktop" from which you can start a terminal, and from the
terminal you can SSH or telnet to your systems:
Please try the demos to get an idea of
the performance of the system and to check for any browser compatibility
issues; the demos run on the same machine as the my.anyterm.org service.

Paypal payments that do not clear immediately, i.e. "e-cheques"
and payments funded from a bank account, are accepted but your account
will not be actvated until the payment has cleared, and may require
human intervention. This seems to take about a week.
Please pay from your paypal balance or using a
credit card, since these methods transfer funds instantly. This
restriction has been introduced in response to a recent scam.
We do not guarantee the availability or functionality of the
my.anyterm.org service. In particular, we do not guarantee that it
will function with any particular web browser, or that
it will be available at any particular time, or offer any particular
level of performance. We do, however, sometimes rely on it to keep our own
servers functional, which we hope will give you some confidence in
It is your responsibility to ensure that your system will

We are currently using a self-signed certificate for HTTPS
access to my.anyterm.org. This means that your connection is
encrypted, but it is not protected against man-in-the-middle
attacks. We will fix this if the service proves sufficiently popular and
if enough people complain. In the
meantime your browser will warn you that the SSL certificate is
not trusted when you connect.
Our fixed-rate subscription is intended to allow periodic
use, for example to allow emergency maintenance, not
continuous access. We therefore have the following monthly
quotas: 30 hours of connection time, 10 Mbytes of HTTP(S) data
transfer, and 1 CPU-hour of processing time. Note that your
account will not be disabled automatically if you exceed these
quotas. Please contact us if you would like to raise these
You may not use your account for any illegal purpose,
including but not limited to unauthorised access to computer
systems. Furthermore you may not use your account for any purpose
that we deem to be disallowed even if such use is legal, for
example sending unsolicited email.
Even if you use HTTPS and SSH, your data passes through our
servers unencrypted and may be logged. You need to trust us not
to abuse our position. We undertake not to disclose your data to
any third party unless they have a legal right to access it,
e.g. law enforcement agencies, or if we reasonably believe that
your account is being used for unlawful purposes, in which case we
may pass your data to law enforcement agencies or other
You should note that our payment processing and account management
system is very much home-made, and some glitches should be expected.
It is possible that in some cases manual intervention may be requierd
to get your account going.
Please give us a valid email address. We will use it only to
remind you when your year's subscription nears expiry or to offer
you other vital account-related information.
If you've forgotten your my.anyterm.org password, you can reset it
using the form below. Enter your username and we'll send an email to
the email address that we have recorded for you. Click on the link
in that email and you'll be able to reset your password.
If you can't remember your username, or if the email address that we
have is wrong, or if this form doesn't work for some other reason, please
get in touch by email and we'll sort it out manually.
