What happens after the free trial?

Since there I could not find a way to search the forums, I'm probably asking a question that has been answered already.

What happens after the 14-day free trial?  I am ONLY interested in the free version of the software.

feedback about latest Debian and Ubuntu packages?



I updated the official packages to Postbooks (desktop client) version 4.7.0 just before the October release of Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn).  The same version will appear in Debian 8 (jessie)

Has anybody got any feedback about installing them using the package manager, issues with the documentation or anything else about the packaging strategy?

CSV Import errors

I am new to Postbooks and I am having trouble using CSV Import to import data.
I am using the ApiStarterKit example to import customers with the provided map and data.

When I start the import I get the errors on the attached file.
Trying to insert data via php script (INSERT INTO api.customer) gives similar results.

Web Interface

Good day - I have installed to a Windows 7 machine and can log into PostBooks Desktop by adding some port forwarding to the virtual machine. When I add port forwarding for the web interface I can not connect. What do I need to adjust to run everything from the same machine.
