See the complete policy
- SMTP - You can access SMTP using your username and password via SMTP AUTH.
- Webmail - https://www.silvertree.org/squirrelmail/
- Shell - Telnet access is not allowed. You must use SSH. Silvertree is an official PuTTY mirror so you can download a great free SSH client from our mirror site
- HTTP - FrontPage extensions are not currently supported on our Apache server, thus all publishing must be done via FTP, SFTP or SCP.
- MUSH Server - Administration and configuration is done via the shell.
Requesting an Account
New accounts may be issued on a case by case basis. Please e-mail the administrator with a detailed explanation of what you require.
Due to people abusing their shell accounts, I am no longer giving out shell only accounts. Period. Do not ask.
