Robust, inexpensive terminal emulation for Windows

Anzio is a terminal emulator, supporting multiple terminal emulation types, along with basic passthrough printing. Anzio supports several methods of communications including over a direct serial line, over a modem, over the Internet or over a local area network. Anzio can act as a dumb terminal over serial or modem connections, as a Telnet client or as a Secure Shell (SSH) client over network connections, connecting your remote host to the local PC. With full screen, zoom, 132-column support and an easy to use interface, Anzio provides you with all the communications features you need for your Windows platform.

AnzioWin adds support for user-defined macros, scripting, FTP and Secure Shell FTP (SFTP) file transfers and includes an embedded version of our Print Wizard product to aid in the printing of special jobs such as forms overlays, labels, special paper sizes, rotated text, auto-fitting to the page, faxing, PDF generation and more.

What does it cost?

AnzioWin starts at $150.00* per PC with quantity discounts beginning at 10 copies.

Anzio Lite starts at $40.00* per PC with quantity discounts beginning with a license for 10 PCs.

* Educational and library pricing also available.


For the current version of Anzio we recommend Windows Server 2008 and later, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 or Windows 11 (32-bit or 64-bit). You should also be on the latest patch release for each operating system. Memory and disk requirements are the minimum required to run Windows.
