I would like to hazard a guess that you're from North India. This is because people from that area seem to be getting this message. This is due to Sify disabling the older dialer protocol to enforce the newer protocol. I think one way is to complain about it to customer care. They apparently change some settings to allow your user ID in with the older protocol.
As far as your solution about logging in with a windows machine and then using it on linux is concerned, it is a trivial solution, but what about those who want to log out due to hourly limitations? They will have to:
Use the internet
Surely a very ugly method but I guess effective if you're desperate I have to confess though that I used to do something of that sort when installing Linux through the net
Another option I woulkd like to explore (haven't tried yet) is the ability to run the Sify windows client through Wine. This is a good option if all other options fail.
its quite tiresome to run sify windows client through wine. i'd also tried running the supersify client through wine it runs but gives the same "...install the latest..." error.
