We often connect from remote machines to the server to administer the system, make changes etc. If root can not log in on sshd then how do we do this ? In most cases, it is not possible or worthwhile to go to the server to work.

Couple of things to be taken care of when using The Best DSL service in Mumbai.
1) Please change router password from default "admin".
By going into the router--->Status, I can get my router's IP address.
If I keep trying the IPs directly in ascending or descending serial order, sure
enough I will reach other routers and where the default password is admin.
Not that I can gain anything out of it, but can fiddle around with the settings
and make it difficult for the other person. OR simply enable remote telnet
management/web management and try and exploit those.
Changing the admin password is a good first step.
2) The login/password (phone number/CA number) will work from any modem/location
which has DSL enabled. This means that unlike the Caller ID based dial up system,
I can use my username/password from anyone's dsl enabled location. The converse
is, someone could do the same to me too.
while they can get your number from the username field if they access your
router, they cannot get your CA number. However, one call to the call center and
a couple of requests later, you can get that too. for any number. They do not
have a good verification system in place.
So you can start downloading on others time. Just like the usernames/passwords
circulated during VSNLs 15000/yr TCP/IP account days.
Changing the default password by going to the mtnl website and subsequently in
the router would be another good step.
3) Also, after every change, we are supposed to go into Tools-->System, Save and
Reboot. This does not work with Firefox 1.5 beta atleast.
Hope this helps.
I have already told my sub divisional engineer about this and sent a brief note
to the feedback form.
Does it warrant sending it to the papers?

Mr. Navin, from this list, had mentioned screening of the movie, Revolution - OS. Is that movie also made under GPL license or can it be redistributed?
I could only get the trailor of the movie, and the music video which was free.
Any ideas whether, I would have to purchase it or is the trailor allowed to be broadcasted?
If there's anything that you want to ask about related to computers and information technology email me at any of the following addresses

I want to make an mp3 player in Linux. It's just for the experience. I
was looking around for the specs of mp3 format. Couldn't find any. That
is kinda obvious since mp3 is a proprietary format. But there are so
many open source mp3 decoders AND encoders. Where / how do these people
get the specs? If they can get the specs then so should I. Can you
please suggest a link / a book or a something where I could get
developer specs for the mp3 format?
Thanks a lot :)
