Applications like these require our proxy server to be constantly running in order translate modern network communications to vintage machines. This along with API fees incurs an ongoing cost to us, and software registrations help to offset this. If you'd like to further support projects by Manticore Software you can do so on this page. This helps to ensure a server will always be available to keep our services active.
