Sorry People I have gone through the other threads regarding Sify Client installation in Ubuntu Ibex . But when i tried it myself i am getting strange errors . Now i am very confused and dunno what to do :(

I am a new Ubuntu user [n00bUbuntu ]so would appreciate some help .....

Here is what i did

I was trying to install using the client that Sify Provides


gunzip sify_bbclient-3.0.tar.gz tar -xvf sify_bbclient-3.0.tar


Extracted the contents to folder desktop


cd Desktop/sify
sudo ./install.sh
// Entered requested password and got in as root
Sify BroadBand Client has been successfully installed

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libssl.so.0.9.8 /usr/lib/libssl.so.4
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8 /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.4


sudo sifyconnect


Checking reachability of Sify Server ... : Failed

Unable to reach Sify Access Manager, Contact Customer Care ...







I want to contact customer care only as a last resort ......


Also i noticed that Ubuntu disconnects Sify Lan as soon as i login

-->I tried Logging into Sify in XP and restarting without logging out and booting Ubuntu .....Ubuntu simply disconnected Sify Lan



I also executed



sudo pppoeconfig



It showed me 2 options

eth0

and the other one i forgot
It asked me 2 options Yes and No
I chose Yes

and it tried configuring the 2 cards [i guess] and finally said that it was unsuccesfull in whatever it was trying to do :cry:

Thanks :)

@All

It seems my Ethernet card is not configured ..... and Ubuntu is unable to do it .... Do you think i need a driver ?

This is the message i get

Sorry ,I scanned 2 interfaces ,but Access Concentrator of your provider did not respond .Please check your network and modem cables .Another reason for the scan failure may also be another running pppoe process which controls the modem

Should i try to Download any drivers ?

Ok , found out that .....

1. There was a problem with my network config ....
2. My Ethernet card Needed to be manually configured as Ubuntu could not detect the setting automatically ....
3. The Sify client needed to be connected with ssl [i am not clear about this problem ]

But anyways Solved all the problems and now everything is working perfectly fine :thumb:...
