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
