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.

The Small Print
- 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 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
accept incoming telnet and/or ssh connections from
- Our fixed-rate subscription is intended to allow periodic
use, for example to allow emergency maintenance, not
continuous access. We therefore reserve the right to enforce
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. Attempting to hack (or
simply "probe") our own system is especially frowned upon and
will result in immediate termination without refund and reports
being submitted to authorities - or your employer, for example.
- Even if you use HTTPS and SSH, your data passes through our
servers unencrypted and will be logged. You need to trust us not
to abuse our position. We undertake not to deliberately 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
appropriate authorities. It is possible, however, that your data
may "leak" to hackers or to other third parties; your expectation
of privacy from this service should be low.
- 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.
