Sify and its CTOs behave like some authoritarian Organization or Educational Institution System Administrator who blocks most ports and limits most services.We are paying for our services dammit!

R u sure tht firewall has been installed first confirm tht.and can be more specific about which p2p software & other applications r not workin.Even i live in Mumbai my Cto has also told me tht he has installed firewall but appliocations works fine for me.

Actually, its not firewall i think its ur pack 48kbps will give u max 4-5KBps

well my problems with torrents started in the last couple of days i spent on sify broadband. the CTO specifically told me that Sify installed a firewall on his network to prevent VIRUSES!

Blocking system ports (139,445,80, even 1433 if needed)are enough for stopping viruses mostly . wtf ping helps in stopping viruses , they even blocked pings . :(

i guess their main motive was to block torrents. i was downloading like 600 megs daily from the night only package. :p
