    Angry Help me with Sify

    I have recently installed UBUNTU 7.04 feisty fawn. I am a subscriber to sify broadbad. I do not know how to download their Sifyconnect software and install it. What they offer is a .rpm file. I do not have alien installed since I cant connect to the net. Please help me resolve my problem. I tried to download the file from Windows, copied it to UBUNTU, asked someone to convert it to .deb and mail me back and tried to install it on UBUNTU. But alas, I as told that the sifyconnect pkg v30 reqiures newer packages of libc6, libglib etc. There is no response from Sify too. Can anyone here help me? I am new to Linux.

    You can download the tar.gz file from http://210.18.11.199:81/bbandclient/...1.3-bin.tar.gz

    extract it :
    Code:
    tar -xzvf sifyconnect-1.3-bin.tar.gz
    install it :
    Code:
    cd sifyconnect-1.3-bin/
    chmod +x install.sh
    ./install.sh
    run sify dialer & login with your sify account :
    Code:
    sifyd
    sifyconnect -l
    You can login with one command :
    add this line to ~/.bashrc file
    Code:
    alias sify="sifyd && echo -e 'accountname\npassword' | sifyconnect -l"
    Just Run 'sify' command whenever you start ubuntu

    Re: Help me with Sify

    I tried all these commands in Ubuntu.

    Cant open any site, but i can ping their gateway and DNS servers and get 100% success.

    Called up Sify customer care they sent in an engineer who told me that he doesn't know anything about Linux.

    So now I have to fix up on my own.

    Any idea whats wrong?

    Re: Help me with Sify

    I tried a work around and now I can connect.

    Since I have got dual boot I connected in Windows and restarted the computer. When I got a
    prompt from the Sify dialer to disconnect I canceled it.

    When the system booted in Ubuntu the connection was working !!!

    I guess theres something wrong with the Sify dialer for Linux.
