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 p@$$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 p@$$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?
