Access Manager is the connection software used to connect to Sympatico for customers with older computers running Windows 95/98/ME.
Access Manager is supplied to Sympatico members in the Sympatico High Speed Start-up kit.

You don't have to use the most recent version of Access Manager. However, upgrading Access Manager will sometimes fix or improve your Sympatico high speed Internet connection.

While expressly prohibited in the User Agreement, Sympatico seems to tolerate its customers running servers. There have been no reports on this site of customers having their service suspended for running a server.

The exception is the use of SMTP servers, since all traffic through port 25 is blocked. See /faq/8457 for more info.
