And we blame Windows for requiring "Admin" privileges for installations...

thats because of sify not linux... sify ppl want root access just for simple program which does nothing but TCPIP connection

root access just for simple program which does nothing but TCPIP connection

Try

Code:
ifconfig eth0 -a 192.168.X.Y netmask 255.255.255.0
As non root

You have to call up Sify Customer Care and tell them to let you login through Linux. They will ask you for the kernel version and then within a couple of hours or so you will be able to login using sifyconnect.Admin: Please put this info in post #1 for people who encounter this issue (I did too when I first installed it 2 years ago)
