I also chatted with a sify cust care executive and he @$$ured me that they have no policy aganist p2p apps .....I have attached a transcript of the chat with sify eecutive....If they dont have apolicy aganist p2p then why our apps fail to work??

see dude if u ask me every p2p application u pointed works fine for me.I dont think they are blocking anything.About DC++ obviously if the hub is busy u will get timedout Thou i am not having prob will tht too.Speaking abt torrents connection and speed will mainly depend upon tracker,seeds.

U r absolutely right Bhinder.... these are blocked by the stupid CTO's.Its also sometimes due to the firewalls installed by the CTO's.Try and run DC ++ in [email protected]$$ive mode... it works 4 me!! Kazaa... whenever I click on supernodes (i dont know what they are but...) it starts workin. I got kazaa lite. Limewire works fine sometimes, emule I dont use.

They probably just block ports, more than they need to. Anyway there are always ways to change the ports used.

i did try running dc++ in [email protected]$$ive mode and it started working fine for me.. but not anymore. :( what i've found is that i can connexct to hubs which use a certain port and i can download just fine but i can't connect to most. :( clear case of port blocking wouldn't you say?

thanks guys for replying .... i too think that sify doesnt block the apps ...its just port blocking....About dc++ i came to know that If port 411 is open then u can connect to almost all the hubs.....Also some thing new that i found out was that if you use port 23 in TCP and UDP settings then everything works fine.....I have asked sify to open 411 ..Lets see how they respond....If you guys can tell me a range of ports that are necessary for Bittorret to work i can ask them to open.....NeO which gateway do u use?? U at CBD right??

gaurav just go to https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 and scan ports u want if it says CLOSED then it means that the port is working fine and not blocked by sify and if u put any app listening for connection on that port then grc will show OPEN .

If it shows STEALTH then forget it cto has f**ked u :p

BTW i dont think they are blocking p2p's , just got few prob yesterday on torrent but everything fine again ..

Thanks power ... I just tried the test and all ports are shown in stealth mode :( except 20 which i was using at the moment .....I got a call from two sify executives from chennai and i cleared it with them that they dont block any p2p apps..They told me that all the ports from their side are open so it is the CTO that has recently installed a firewall and has blocked all the ports ... They Told me to ask my cable operator to allow access to the ports...if he doesnt agree sify will look into the matter....lets see how it goes about

So is this problem prevalent for the rest of india???
Does Sify has a policy aganist p2p networks??
If i want these P2P apps to work what ports should i ask sify to open?
