This is not an available net program, another solution.
You can get clustalv from ftp.ebi.ac.uk
directory /pub/software/(dos or unix or mac or vax)
The sequences can be retreived from the same site:
the easiest way is to use SRS via WWW
URL: http:/www.ebi.ac.uk/srs/srsc
alternative you can use the email server: send mail to 
netserv at ebi.ac.uk
(give HELP in the mail-body to get a description of how it works)
