Think you are being cheated of online time?

Sify claims it is there to protect misuse of online time for users, that the system logs us out after a period of time of inactivity. But it logs us out even when we are online surfing or downloading files. And it is a big issue for you.

What can we do? I have tried my part... Sent mails asking for optional removal of this so called feature... And I think I can do with some help from you guys...

What can we do?

Cheers. This is optional as well... Report if it happens to you to the call center guys and they will disable this for you...

Now, the only grudge left is the always on top broadband icon in spite of the fact that we already have a blinking icon lying in the system tray. It looks bad, comes over my applications and is irritating… I have reported this too and am waiting for a reply on it.

Another very bad thing is that installing the broadband client changed my homepage back to Sify website. This is again a very bad thing to do… Any action taken without user’s approval in my opinion is evil

Auto logoff is optional too… Now the always on top icon

It might be optional for you but not for me.

well i do not run zonealarm anymore. sify always had some or the other problem with it. my suggestion is, shout at the b*st*rds. they wanted to make ur system secure with their crappy antivirus. tell them you want the firewall working. and get some of their guys to come to ur house and show him your problem.in my current scenario, i get booted out around once every 6-7 hours. the bad thing is that the client shows me logged in... the net just stops working. so i have to manually log out and log in. and looking at the totally unresponsive client that they have for me now, i get logged out of chats, IMs, IRC... that will cost me big some day... s*cks.

CTOs. i can only laugh... i am scared on moving to linux full time, coz i am sure my CTO wont have even the slightest idea what linux is all about.i would have loved to have a mac... and tell the CTO to configure my network for me... i bet he would have told me to load windows xp on it. ;)
