Hi,

I've written a GUI dialer program for Linux using the QT toolkit. You can find the first release here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/antidialer/

Its very raw -- hacked up in a few days time actually... just to get my Mom to use Linux full time ;-)

Current features:

* XML based configuration (options file in ~/.antidialer/antidialerrc)
* AutoLogin
* Password Saving (with encryption)
* Account Details/ Signup/ Renew/ Password changing buttons
* HeartBeat

TODO:

Currently if you need to log out or have heartbeat enabled then you must keep the dialer alive/minimized and hence consume resources. This was not top priority for me as I have an unlimited connection. But i'll definitely get this out of the way soon.

Requirements:

QT development tools (uic, moc, qmake) in addition to g++
development libraries for qt, mcrypt and x-windows (libqt3-mt-dev, libmcrypt-dev, x-windows-system-dev)


Please come back with any suggestions/bug reports.

For any issues you may contact me at:

Regards,
Siddhesh

Hey thanks :)

I've actually been on for quite some... a silent watcher more or less. The thing is I've been more or less satisfied with the service except for the support... and except during the rains ;) I think its more because my CTO is very cool... I get more or less VIP treatment from him, not to mention discounts from time to time ;)

I hope people find this dialer useful for them. I guess I've made it more or less according to my Mom's needs. If enough people are interested I will work on it further. In any case I'm planning on a few modifications later on to improve performance and add a few features -- especially the troubleshooting app that windows has.

Well no. I've used the old protocol document to implement this. Either ways, its working fine here, and I guess the old protocol is still functional. I don't think they'll risk removing support for it so soon.

yeah or they will have to face the wrath of the underdogs ( GNU/Linux, Mac users ). I am not a sify user btw.

Thanks a lot for writing this! It runs very well on my system (Arch linux 0.7.1, kernel 2.6.15, qt 3.3.5) :)

Great!!

Tell me if you have any feedback on it. I won't promise a one day fix on anything... too much workload in office of late. But I surely will be working on AntiDialer till I can get it up to speed with features on the windows client.

PS: There aren't too many linux users on here are there??
