Hi all, I have been playing with many sify alternative clients but was unsuccessful. If you have windows and any other unix system, you can connect to broadband in any linux or solaris.1. Logon to windows OS, login using sify BB client.2. Hibernate your OS.(Dont Shutdown/restart as it will logout Sify BB Client)3. Boot into Linux/Solaris4. Configure your Network with the Sify IP settings. (configure static ip, subnet,gateway and DNS Servers).5. Thats it! Now you will able to connect to internet..It worked for me. Tested on Ubuntu..Just try it out..Will be Happy if it works for you..:yahoo:-Satya.
