Welcome SAM!!!

How many of you are bugged by Cyberoam at your workplace or college??

For those who don’t know, Cyberoam is a corporate firewall used by many organisations including our college… 😡 😡 😡 to block websites and restrict user’s internet accessibility. To continue (so called) uninterrupted access to internet user needs to login ever hour in Cyberoam client. In our college it also restricts the amount of data that user can access in 24 hrs to 100Mb. So if your usage exceeds than there are only three options for you:-

1. Wait for clock to Pass Midnight.
2. Plead your friends to give you their account details.
3. Make a fool of Cyberoam(Bypass it)….. 😛

Well for third option you need to be a genius…:D and for 2nd option you need cooperative friends… 😀

Enough of Cyberoam, lets talk about SAM(Syberoam Account Manager). SAM is simple GUI developed in Python with Qt bindings in collaboration with dhinchak (who gave birth to it… :D) for managing Cyberoam Accounts. In this you can add multiple accounts if you know your friend’s usernames and passwords and to reduce your annoyance we added certain features to it.

It re-logins into the current account after definite interval of time defined by user itself, it can also switch accounts if usage of one account reaches critical limit specified by user or it maxes-out. There are also notifications options which user can customize according to his liking. There are many more features in it which user can exploit if user wishes so as it’s OPEN SOURCE …. :D.

That’s my friend SAM( 😀 ). Do you like him?….NO…it’s your choice. It’s my creation and I love himm… :P.

After reading the post ,if you are slightly excited to check out SAM, it’s source is available at
SAM. For for information please have a look at README file in the source.

Though it’s still in development phase and since its tested only on our college’s server, it might not work fully or even partially outside our campus. Although we are working on it.

THAT”S ALL FOLKS….
See you later….
Adios and Do comment… 🙂 .
