Why the hell u people want sourcecode .. are u paying anything for this prog or what??? And if u know even a bit of firewall u must be able to know what connections a program makes and to what ip's ..You people have no write to ask for sourcecode its completely choice of programmer to give out code...Though its ur choice to use the prog or not ... Putting your lame views about ur password going out is just pure stupidity .. No one asked why supersify asks password and it wasnt open source ... If u dont like prog u say it once and just forget thread instead of putting lame views without any proof that progs connect to any outside ip's . If this is the condition why the hell people should write free softwares

umm...i think the router / modem needs to be physically rebooted to relogin which isn't very difficult if the router has support for CRON jobs or if it can be rebooted through a software command...

no i didn't. I thought the above poster wanted to know how to relogin at those times. Anyway, why don't you just release the software's source code under GNU GPL so that you can lay all the suspicions to rest?

The url for checking usage is redirecting to bsnl portal. Therefore, I am unable to check my usage neither thru my browser nor thru the tool provided here.Is it happening to me only, or others are experiencing this prob as well ?Kindly suggest how can I check my usage using my browser. What is the URL.Thanks in advance. :)

Usually http://www.sancharnet.in/dataoneredirect.htm gets redirected to different login urls depending on the region you are using dataone connection. For few weeks, this is not working and is getting redirected to bsnl.co.in. For me in kerala, I used to get redirected to http://10.240.43.216/webLogin.jsp . So I am using this for checking usage. I am not sure if this will work for any region or why they use different URL's for different regions.

Use it if you want.
If you're suspicious, then dont... No need for fuss at all!


Anyways, this app can measure all dataflow - http://www.dumeter.com/

I have been using DU meter for quite some time now and the results shown by DU meter vary a lot (sometimes greatly arnd 200MB if downloads are huge) from those shown on BSNL usage.

shaplus: can you clarify one thing; how do you get the usage between 2-8am? I was checking my august usage on bsnl and it shows 16-aug.11:30pm-17aug.4.38am- 344MB. There is no breakup per hour. I know that this d/l was done from 2am-4.38am but its not shown. If this breakup is available, where is it on the site?

You have to restart the internet connection before freetime usage to have the freetime usage logged seperately. If you use the modem to dial the connection, then you may have to restart the modem to create a new log entry. btw, my software only uses the log displayed in BSNL site itself. Entries overlapping free and non free times are considered as Mixed usage and there is an option in the software to exclude/include it from total calculation.
