eg. Modem ethernet ip 192.168.2.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
Your box ethernet ip which connects to the modem 192.168.2.2 ~ 192.168.2.254
Modem ethernet ip 10.1.2.1 netmask 255.255.255.252
Your box ethernet ip which connects to the modem 10.1.31.2 ~ 10.1.31.3

I am using Sify and am facing problems with hosting a server and logging in
remotely. In fact, people cant even ping my IP! I know this is because of
the proxy/NAT that Sify has set up in my area. I though am not aware of the
details of this. Is there any way to override this configuration so that I
get my freedom back?

rrestore -if abcd.res.in:/dev/st0
abcd.res.in: connection refused
login to abcd.res.in as root is failed.
I have entered proper entries in ~user/.rhosts and /etc/equiv.

dhcp is not neccessary. U can disable dhcp and set a static ip (in
the same subnet as the modems ip). The modems ip can be set to any
The mtnl dns is dicey and goes down sometimes. Use a local dns.
One issue will be blocking spam at the mtnl server. Downloading
and filtering is pointless.
Remember to change the default passwords in the modem and at http:\\register.mtnl.net.in

Thats a great idea!..
we see so many mails about availablity of CD's, if we could put up a simple list with contact details etc, it could be avoided..
but we also got to make sure it remains up-to date.. else we would be back to the mailing list.. (maybe a wiki like page editable by all members would do?)
