Hi,
  I think the issue here is that Jan Hermans retired a number of years
back (quite a while ago if I remember correctly), and the original Hermans
group and DOWSER web sites now appear to be down.

I'd suggest to ask Cameron Mura if he's got a copy of it still:
  http://muralab.org/~cmura/DOWSER/

If DOWSER source code proves elusive, this might be an alternative to look at:
  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5029276/

Best,
  John Stone
