Send us a request if you do not see yours, maybe we'll have it soon.
The free Webinator must have direct Internet access to
ls.thunderstone.com on port 80 to run. (That may seem
obvious, but some organizations have internal webs behind firewalls and

Thunderstone to validate its license.

Web servers. Like any web crawler, the Webinator can be abusive
You must submit a registration form for each machine that
will run the software.
If you have purchased and installed a full Texis
distribution, do not install this package
onto the same machine. You may install it on a different machine.
To use Webinator on an existing Texis installation, use the
Webinator scripts that came with it (or contact tech support
for updates) — they contain more functionality than
the Free Webinator scripts.
This version of Webinator creates indexes that should not be
accessed or modified by version 5 or earlier, if the data
contains Unicode/international/hi-bit characters.
