I'm not sure I see the point of Anyterm.

Just run IPv6 and open your firewall to ssh. If you are IPv4 behind NAT,
just port forward ssh on IPv4 through to wherever (you are already doing
that for port 80 anyway). Then all you have to do from anywhere is ssh
in. Yes, you need an ssh client, but clients are available on every
platform imaginable, including Windows, Android and iPhone. If you're a
Windows person take puTTY with you on a USB stick or just download and
install it as needed.

And once you have ssh access, you can do *anything*.

AnyTerm seems like a lot of work for a minimal payoff...
