We had sometime back released an automatic login script for Asianet broadband connections. We had since then signed up for Reliance broadband at one of our offices and had to set up something to connect to the connection automatically. The auto login script for Reliance broadband that we created has been published via our github account as Free Software under GPL. The script was written around the logic published by Kunal Dua on his blog - http://www.kunaldua.com/blog/2009/12/reliance-wireless-broadband-auto-l… and was released as Free Software. We took that and built upon that and have released the modified script here. Thanks to Kunal for releasing his script under a Free Software license. The script allows you to connect to Reliance, disconnect from Reliance or connect and retain connection automatically. The retain connection feature was especially useful for us as we had frequent disconnection issues with the connection. Since this is Free Software, feel free to use, modify and distribute the script. You might also want to make a small contribution to FSF if you think this script is useful for you. If there had not been any FSF or GPL or Free Software you wouldn't have been able to use this software gratis. It would be great if you can let us know of any issues/bugs you find in the script. You can use the issue queue at github or the comment form below for the same. Happy hacking.

Asianet Dataline is an ISP in Kerala and they use a web browser based authentication system to log the user onto their network. One of their most popular plans the - Homenet 475 offers free unlimited downloads from 2AM to 8AM. Now if there was a way to turn on your system at 2AM, automatically login to Asianet and turn your download manager on and then shutdown at 8AM it would have been perfect. The only problem is that the http based authentication system makes it a bit unwieldy to automate. Well not really :-). We have created a bash script to automate this login process. Features - Automatically connect to Asianet Dataline without having to sign in via the browser. - In startup and free mode the script will keep the connection alive. - The script will automatically reconnect if connection breaks because of a power failure or a line problem. - In free mode the script will call any related startup and shutdown scripts placed inside the ~/.auto-login/startup and ~/.auto-login/shutdown folders. Setup Instructions a) Copy script to your favorite scripts folder. b) Edit script to update username and password with your Asianet login information. c) Add script to your startup process. See different ways of using the script below to know more. d) If you want to start and stop other applications at the time of starting the script then create a folder ~/.auto-login and inside that create sub-folders startup and shutdown. Place other scripts that have to be called during startup and shutdown of this script into the respective folders. Make sure that these scripts have their executable bit set. Different ways of using the script 1) Add a shortcut to your task bar to launch the script with the parameter "auto". Use this shortcut to start the connection with one click and stop the connection with one click. Remember that the connection will time out if there is no activity. But that should not be a problem because you can connect again with a single click. 2) Add the script to your startup process with parameter "startup". This will keep the script running in the background and the script will keep the connection alive with keep-alive requests. 3) Add the script to your startup process with parameter "free". This will keep the script running in the background and the script will connect only during the free download hours and then it will keep the connection alive with keep-alive requests until the free time ends. When free time ends it will disconnect the connection. In this mode the script will also run any related startup and shutdown scripts placed inside the ~/.auto-login/startup and ~/.auto-login/shutdown folders. The script is available at http://www.zyxware.com/software/utilities/asianet-auto-login.v.1.0.tar… The latest source can be downloaded from http://github.com/anoopjohn/Asianet-Auto-Login-Script If there are issues with the script please use the github issue queue at http://github.com/anoopjohn/Asianet-Auto-Login-Script/issues Internet Shell Scripting Bash Asianet Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.

The dream of every person starting out to build websites is to reach out to as many people as possible. Not very many actually make it to more than a few hundred visitors per month on a regular basis. But with the profusion of social bookmarking sites, there is a chance for some of these low traffic sites to get bursts of very high traffic once in a while, for ex: when they get slashdotted. The question is how to outlive such spikes in traffic, without burning large holes in your pocket The problem with such burst traffic is that, a good hosting plan that can survive such spikes will be prohibitively expensive for the site to maintain during the regular traffic days. But you can never predict when 'your day' is going to be. So you either have to be willing to pay the hefty charges and lie in wait for 'your day' to arrive, or just be unprepared and let the burst traffic take your site and the hosting server down. There is however a midway between these two extreme options. That is to make best use of your situation. Drupal gives you pretty good control over your sites performance through its caching mechanisms as well as its throttle mechanisms. You can tweak these two to ensure that your site is getting the best out of your hosting server capabilities. Caching Settings 1) Make sure that you have turned on page caching and block caching. 2) Set your cache lifetime to the average interval between your site updates. 3) Enable compression of your Javascript and CSS files. Throttle Settings Go to Admin > Site Building > Modules and enable throttling for modules that you think can be disabled without drastically reducing the usability of your site for anonymous users. Make sure that when you set throttling for a module you should throttle its dependent modules as well. Be extremely careful when you set throttle so as to not throttle essential modules that can change site behavior or essential functionalities. Once you have these settings your hosting plan will easily have effectively increased its capacity to handle traffic on to the same drupal site. Now you have done your best to handle a spike as far as drupal is concerned. A normal shared server hosting will still go down if your site suddenly gets 10K visitors in a day. There is however one more hacky trick you can use to scale the capabilities of your hosting account one more notch. This is not the drupal way of doing things, but this will help you keep your site up longer and handle small spikes easily. Hack to extend shared hosting capacity to survive spikes Normally burst traffic would enter your site through a single URL which was bookmarked in a Social Bookmarking system like Slashdot or Digg. This page is going to be your weak point. The assumption is that you are going to get a hint of the burst traffic as it starts. Normally you can, if you monitor your site on a very regular basis. Read further only if you think you can get this hint somehow. One of our sites Ubuntu Manual got dugg one day and we got 13000 visits in a day. We had a person in charge of the site and he was able to identify the spike (and the source) as it grew. If you can catch this in time then the hack is as follows. Note down the URL which is the floodgate. Carefully create the complete path structure of this URL in your hosting account. Log out from your site, browse to the URL being seiged and use your browser to view the source of the page and save this at the path mentioned above. If your path structure does not end with a file name, save the file as index.html and modify your .htaccess to use index.html along with index.php as your DirectoryIndex parameter. This hack will take a heavy load off your server as it will not have to go through the drupal bootstrap process to serve that particular page. For the visitors who are going to visit other pages on your site through that page, they will be served through drupal, but the percentage of users who are going to do that are going to be few anyway, and your server should be able to handle that just like a normal day. What we have here is only a solution to stretch your resources to the max. There will however still be a limit to the traffic any given server can handle given your spec. Now if you want infinite scalability you will want to look at some cloud based solution like Amazon Web Services.

Firefox is a not only a choice, but a better alternative to Internet Explorer for GNU/Linux users. Windows version of Firefox is also available for download for free. But some sites may not at all show up properly in Firefox. This has nothing to do with Firefox, it is more or less an issue on part of the designers of the site itself. Since Internet Explorer does not have a Linux version, you will have to use wine to install and run Internet Explorer in Ubuntu. We have compiled a step by step procedure on how to install Internet Explorer in Ubuntu with useful screenshots.

We had a query from one of our customers to help them migrate their local mail server to Google Apps. They wanted to do this because they did not have the sufficient in-house capability nor have the funds to get paid external capability to support an internal mail server. One hurdle that they were facing was that they had around 40GB of mail left on the local mail server that they wanted to migrate to the new mail accounts they created on Google Apps. One of the problems was that the local IMAP server kept on crashing whenever they tried the bulk import and then there were frequent authentication errors. We took up the project and completed the migration process within a week. The migration took that long because the complete 40GB(not quite because Google rejects huge attachments) had to be uploaded to Google over an unfavorably biased upstream channel. The local mail server was dovecot and it was a pretty old version of dovecot too - pre 1.0. The IMAP server used to crash erratically during the bulk migration process but we worked around this by running a small script to restart the IMAP server if it went down after checking every minute. One good thing about the migration process with Google was that the bot was very patient and would retry on accounts that fail. So this 1 min interval ensured that the mail in the accounts from which import was happening at the time of crash always reached the Google server once the IMAP came back on. Another problem was that there were quite a lot of authentication failures. It seemed that the mailserver was restored from a backup after some recent crash and this messed up the users and their uids leaving lot of mboxes orphans without valid users associated. Since the mboxes were named username we simply ran a script to move ownership back to the user with the same name. To add to the mess the local server was already compromised and was running a full scale spam relay service. We did not fix this issue as the server was going to be put to sleep after the migration. We worked around this issue by stopping all the unnecessary processes on the server other than the IMAP server. Once the initial hiccups were sorted out the migration went smoothly and Google neatly imported the complete set of accounts and their mails from the local server. Google recognized the IMAP folders and labeled the emails accordingly while being imported into Google Apps. Other than the small concern that Google is going to have complete access to all your organizations mails there are no other reason that I could think off that should prevent small educational institutions in moving to Google Apps. Google Apps offers free services for educational institutions. For commercial establishments a lite edition is free for use but the full and heavier version requires you to pay Google subscription charges. If you are a small user it might be better for you to avail the Free Services from Google and as you grow you can decide between the Free vs Paid services from Google or alternatively start looking at getting support externally initially and the finally hiring internal capability to manage your local servers. Our Server Support Services and Migration Services We however are happy to offer to any interested customers our services in remote administration of existing servers, i.e. if you are planning to get external help or if you are finding that paying for internal capability for the same is not entirely worth the money. For those who are looking to migrate to Google Apps, you can avail our services to have a hassle-free migration experience.

If you have noticed a drastic slowdown in your DSL internet connection after you upgraded to Ubuntu Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04) then it might not be that your ISP is entirely to blame. It could be settings on your PC that is slowing things down. We had a problem in our office where Ubuntu PCs were getting only around 80Kbps as opposed to 2Mbps from Windows machines. After troubleshooting and playing with some configuration parameters we got the Ubuntu Machines up to the same level as the Windows PCs The solution is simple. All you have to do is to open /etc/sysctl.conf and add the following to the end of the file. You might have to tweak the value 32768 (all occurrences in the following) to any power of 2 that works perfectly fine for you. We had seen several places where these values were different. 32768 was the value for which we had the best results on the BSNL bandwidth test. We use this test because we have a BSNL broadband connection. Once the file is saved you can reload these kernel parameters by running sudo sysctl -p or by simply restarting the system. # Tweaks for faster broadband... net.core.rmem_default = 32768 net.core.rmem_max = 32768 net.core.wmem_default = 32768 net.core.wmem_max = 32768 net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096 32768 32768 net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096 32768 32768 net.ipv4.tcp_mem = 32768 32768 32768 net.ipv4.tcp_rfc1337 = 1 net.ipv4.ip_no_pmtu_disc = 0 net.ipv4.tcp_sack = 1 net.ipv4.tcp_fack = 1 net.ipv4.tcp_window_scaling = 1 net.ipv4.tcp_timestamps = 1 net.ipv4.tcp_ecn = 0 net.ipv4.route.flush = 1 Although this fix was tried out in Ubuntu it is possible that this might work for other distros with comparable kernels. It looks like the DSL routers and connections are optimized for the default values used in windows. So we just tweak the values used in GNU/Linux to match the router - simple :-) Linux System Administration Ubuntu Internet Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.

The world is moving online. With this a huge and ever-growing chunk of the world advertising spending is moving online. A slice of this pie is for yours to take provided you do the right home work and take the right effort and persist in putting it for a sustained period of time. As with any task that generates revenue it is not as easy at it sounds like because if it had been so, it would have been tried out by too many people leading to a ruin of the revenue potential of the task. As a company our objective is to make money online and we are not talking about money you generate through projects but money as in money you generate from products like YouTube or Skype. It is not simple and neither is it straightforward. There is however a slightly easier way of making money online that we have been trying to promote among people we know, among freelancers and among students. It is as you might have already guessed - blogging. Again, like is mentioned above, it is not very simple to make money through blogging. In fact most of the bloggers out there doesn't make any money at all or makes only in insignificant quantities to be considered worthwhile or considered a viable self-employment opportunity. But there are indeed quite a few bloggers who have been doing it successfully and sometimes even so successful that they have become millionaires through blogging alone. Don't believe this? Well Chitika, one of the advertisment providers we had reviewed in our review on ad-providers published a study in 2006 on the revenues of top 50000 bloggers in the world. The study claims that the top 50000 bloggers in the world earned a total of US $500 Million. Although the basic method used in the study to calculate the numbers is questionable, the numbers should give you an idea about the possibility of earning revenue through blogging online. If you would like to see some more real world statistics you can take a look at a survey by Problogger on blogger revenues. The survey gives a break up of the revenues of the viewers at the site. Around 23% of bloggers who took the survey was earning more than US 1000$ a month. 23% is not a small percentage. Now the people who follow problogger are supposed to be earning that kind of revenues but still. Now why are a lot of people not making a lot of money online? Simple - absence of proper research into successful methods and/or lack of effort in trying these out and finally lack of persistence. These three factors - viz. Research, Effort and Persistence - are the basic requirements for you to start building a successful blogger career. And before you start be ready to fight a long battle upstream before you start earning reasonably good amounts of money. This battle is the entry level barrier that acts as the stumbling block of most potential bloggers. Like any business - blogging is also a business and persistence is the key to survival and success. Lot of bloggers give up blogging as a potential career because of the small amount of money they earn initially from blogging. What they don't realize is that the effort that you invest in blogging will pay you for quite some time after you put in the effort. This is unlike traditional jobs where you get paid for the effort you put in for a given period of time and then to earn more you will have to put in further effort. In blogging the returns of effort you put is cumulative. Each day you get paid for cumulative of all the effort you put in till that day. As with any cumulative functions this can lead to a reasonably large number even if the actual return for a single day's effort is very low. Suppose you get on an average of 1c per day for a blog entry and you blog for a year, your earnings per day at the end of the year would be $3.65. But the returns for the effort of that day would be still only 1c. Now this is not exactly how it works because the returns of your efforts will go on diminishing as time goes on. But the theory still holds and the returns on your effort for a day will keep coming in after you have put in that effort. We don't have a simple solution for bloggers wanting to make quick money online. But there are some general guidelines that you can follow to go towards building your blogging career. Don't take that this is THE list but these are some points that we have identified. Do your research on Google and collect as much information about blogging before you set out on this venture. 1) Select a niche area and create content. Writing on niche areas has been proven to be far more successful in generating revenues than writing on broad topics. The good think about niche areas is that there are too many of them that you would not have as much competition as you would have had if you were writing on a broader topic. For example it might be easier to blog on Kerala style cooking than Indian cooking styles because you will only have to compete with bloggers from Kerala. Niche topic blogging has both advantages and disadvantages. Advantage lies in the lesser competition but disadvantage lies in the fact that fewer people would be searching for niche topics. 2) Information is public but text is not. Do not copy content. You can do your research online on topics you plan to write but do not copy content unless the source explicitly allows you to do that. There are two reasons for this. One is that it is not ethical and the second is that Google does not like duplicate content. However it does not mean that you cannot use content from sites like Wikipedia which gives it's content under GFDL. We are running an experiment on Wikipedia content by starting a blog on Mortgage Tips and Guidance. 3) Select a handful of topics and blog about them. You probably will not be able to generate sufficient revenue from a singly blog. You might want to start blogging on several areas at the same time. This is akin to the saying - do not put all your eggs in the same basket. You never know which of the areas you select are going to succeed and which are going to fail. But don't just go ahead and start too many blogs that you can't manage at the same time. Start as many as you can manage on a regular basis. 4) Your life might be interesting but everybody might not want to know that. You might not always succeed in building good traffic by blogging about your life alone. Your friends and relatives might like that but that does not mean that everybody should. Besides people who come to see what you are doing are least likely to click on the ads to be able to give you any revenue. 5) Blog regularly. This applies only if you are targeting regular visitors. People like predictability. They will not want to come to your blog and see that you have not posted anything new after their last visit. It is not required that you blog daily on all your blogs but you should be blogging at regular intervals so that your visitors will know for sure when you have the next post ready. 6) Do your research properly. Research and identify strategies that have worked for you, that have worked for other bloggers. Experiment and try out new things at the same time logging all the results. Compare and contrast effects of experiments that you conduct and also from results published by other bloggers. Share your experience with the blogger community. 7) Persist in your effort. You efforts will start paying you only after some time. Don't start blogging expecting to get immediate revenues. Additionally there are lot of skills and techniques that you have to learn to be able to fully capitalize the content that you create and it will take some time before you become a pro-blogger. Of all the points listed, this might be the key and could be the only real difference between a successful blogger and an unsuccessful blogger.

You can replace your Google ads with small but catchy ads that you write yourself and link to a couple of affiliate products that are relevant to the readers of your blog. If you go one step further and actually mention the products inside the blog (with your affiliate link of course) you'll really start making some money. Add new comment

We are a tech start-up firm. Our objective is to make money by developing successful web based applications for the general public. There are two ways of making money online. One is when you create a web based system and then sell rights to advertise on the website to ad-networks or directly to companies. The second is when your application becomes immensely popular and you sell the complete website to a bigger player who pays for future revenues and consolidation advantages. History of Zyxware.comZyxware has been in operation for almost 2 years now. We did not have a website for almost the whole of the first year. The reason was that we did not have the manpower capability to manage and maintain the site on a regular basis. But currently our operations are becoming smooth and we have the necessary in house capability to manage our site. From a meager 20 to 30 visitors per day in March 2007 we have grown to over 2000 visitors per day in by March 2008. And the number of page views has grown from around 100 pages per day to around 6000 pages per day. We also rank reasonably high on several critical keyword searches in Google. Strategies of Zyxware.comThere are a few things that we have done that have ensured this growth over the past 1 year. One is that we have been regularly updating the content on our site. Search engines like Google like new content and they like dynamic content. Even on old content the comments posted by the visitors keep the content changing. Also we have been pretty decent in terms of replying to comments by users. We have replied to almost all of the questions posted by users on our site. Whenever people get their questions answered they have a tendency to come back and ask further questions and to recommend the site to others We have not enabled a forum feature on our site as we still do not have the volume of comments that would justify a separate forum for the comments. However sooner or later we are going to have a separate support forum for users so as to be able to manage the customer interaction part more smoothly. We also have added some features on our site targeted at providing useful services to the users. One example is our Request CD Service which allows users to request for free software cds which we download and send to the users at the cost of media and shipping. We have invested a lot of time and effort to get to this level. And even this is not even close to where we would like ourselves to be. However we are on our way. One reason why we are looking to increase the traffic on our site is to use it as a launchpad to drive our products and services. The larger the number of hits the larger would be the number of people who will get a chance to sample our applications. Ways of making money out of website visitorsNow coming back to the issue of generating money out of websites, we would initially be generating revenue primarily from the first option described at the beginning of this article. Generating money through advertisements is not easy but once you get a hang of the process and the steps you have to take to maintain the stream it is kind of easy. We are only quarter way through that process. We have been reasonably successful in terms of bringing people to our site. Now the next area that we have to gain expertise is to learn to make money out of it. We are going to be playing with zyxware.com by trying out the different advertisement options and figuring out the rates of return and the performance and customer service of the ad-networks. Types of advertisementsThere are three different types of advertisements in terms of method of calculation of returns. One is a pay per view or commonly called PPM(Pay per mille - pay per thousand views) and the second in the pay per click also called the pay per click. There is also a third method based on a pay per action or PPA like that used by amazon. PPM ads give an assured amount for every view of the page. Though the rates of returns might be low per page the average rates would compare with the PPC ads. PPC advertisements pay a much higher rate per click as compared to a rate per page but the number of clicks per view are very low and hence both would work out to be equally remunerative. The PPA pays higher but the probability of a successful action, like the purchase of a book by a user after clicking an amazon ad, is low that you will need very large number of views to have a steady state revenue. You can also classify the ads based on the visual aspects of the advertisements. You can have text ads as given by google ads, or you can have banner or flash ads like they give with Tribalfusion or adbrite. Popular ad-networksWe have shortlisted the following companies to try out the advertisements. There are several aspects that we have to compare and find out. Some of them are - ease of integration, ease of management, rate of returns, control over frauds, ease of registration, minimum restriction, minimum qualifications etc. The following are the list of companies that we have come across and planning to try out:- Google Adsense Casalemedia Burstmedia ValueClick Tribalfusion Chitika Advertising.com Adbrite If you come across other providers that you think give you more ROI do post your comments so that we could post the information for the benefit of everybody. We will be posting more detailed analysis of our experiences regarding these ad service providers once we have the necessary data.

We had an opportunity recently to provide support over the phone for one of our customers for installing Ubuntu and configuring Airtel broadband on a desktop PC. The Airtel broadband was connected through a Beetel 220BX ADSL modem but the instructions should work for most broadband connections where the device is a modem router. The first part in setting up the connection is to set up static IP on the computer. Open System > Administration > Network. In the Network Manager dialog, click on the Wired device, right click and open the Properties dialog of the Wired Network Device. In the device properties dialog, unselect the "Enable Roaming Mode" checkbox, select static IP as the configuration and enter the following values IP Address: 192.168.1.2 Network Mask: 255.255.255.0 Gateway: 192.168.1.1 Once these settings are entered done press OK and close the dialog. Go back to the Network Settings dialog and click on the DNS tab. Click on the Add button and add the following IP Addresses as the DNS Servers in the same order as below. 202.56.215.6 202.56.230.6 208.67.222.222 208.67.220.220 The second part is to configure the modem to connect automatically to the Internet by configuring PPPOE on the modem directly. Open a browser and type 192.168.1.1 in the Address bar. Enter 'admin' and 'password' as the username and password respectively in the password dialog. The modem administration control panel will open up in the browser. Click the WAN link given on the left menu. Click the edit button. In the page that comes up enter VPI - 1 and VCI 32. Click Next. Select PPPOE as the connection type and LLC/SNAP-BRIDGING as the encapsulation mode. Click Next and continue to the next page. In the next page enter your login details for the Airtel Broadband connection. Your PPP username must be of the form _dsl@airtelbroadband.in and is the one you would have got from Airtel. Enter the PPPOE service name as 'airtel' and the authentication mode to auto. Continue to the next page and disable IGMP multicast and enable WAN service. Change the service name to 'airtel'. Click next and then click on SAVE to save your settings and then in the WAN Setup page click on save/reboot to reboot the router. Once the router is rebooted run sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart in a terminal. Open a browser and start browsing :).

I don't know of any way you can increase the broadband speed. You can specifically increase download speeds by using download managers.
