Hi everyone,
This is only my 4th post, so I guess nobody knows me. I"ll take this opportunity to introduce myself.

I'm a foreign student living near Pondichery. I also work part-time as sysadmin in a school where we got sify as only connection offering unlimited connections - limited to 75 MB as you all know :angry:
I'm into networks, electronics and photography. Trying to get to know linux better too. Bit of programming too, but not my main interest.

From the moment I first saw the sify client, I knew we had to get rid of it !
Besides, we got a single-floppy router based on fli4l and the sify linux client doesn't work on it - and it's way to big to fit on the single floppy with the rest of the progs, anyway.

So I tried understanding how the prog works - network scanning mainly. I'm in the process of writing an alternative client which will be published open-source, of course ;)

I've also found an excellent autospy of the program by www.indiasec.com. Check it out !
Sify dialer for linux reverse-engineered

I also encourage any programers who've attempted anything like this to publish their experiences on this board. Will publish mine in a couple of days.

I look forward to meeting y'all more closely and hope to find interesting posts here in the future too.

yes and no.Right now I'm working on a PHP version of it ... yeah I know, not the ideal language, but it has cool networking functions.Then I'll write a command-line c version for unix/linux. Since it'll be open source, anyone can port it to windows, but I'll probably not developp a windows version myself.

yeah, but as I said, it's only a test version, and the c version is already on it's way.so the php version is only my personal draft and I wasn't thinking of actually releasing it - unless someone wants it

It might actually interest people with a small network wanting to share connections for the users and adding web-interfaced management.
