You have to put them an e-mail. They give a password, and you download by ftp 
using this pass.

I did, it works, the program also. It is rather enormous and does a lot of 
different things (we call this 'une usine a gaz').It reads nuc seqs, does 
restriction, translation.. and pep seqs, does clivage and reverse translation. 
It has a nice interface to the web for doing direct blasts with bits 
of seqs and so on. Probably more but I haven't had time yet to explore

All the best
