Features and help (v0.2):
To activate the new Mac Address spoofing, simply edit the configuration file. In the config file at $HOME/.antidialer/antidialerrc, which is an XML file, you will find an element by the name of "MacAddress". You simply have to change the value fo the "value" attribute from "" to your mac address. An example:
<MacAddress value="ae a8 50 e0" />
Following is the full list of changes:
- Version number bump. Only those downloading from CVS will have noticed this. I'm doing this since there have eventually been large changes in the plugin framework and the configuration options module. I'd say more than enough to increment a point release ;-)
- Feature Request #1530816: MAC Address spoofing is now part of the dialer. To activate, simply edit the configuraton file $HOME/.antidialer/antidialerrc and enter the desired MAC address in the "value" property of the "MacAddress" element.
- Bug Fix: The dialer now adds missing configuration elements into the config file. Thanks to Tathagata Banerjee for sending this report in.
- Redesign of the plugin framework. The plugin framework is now cleaner and hence faster. This also fixed some obscure bug by which the dialer crashed when exactly one config element was missing. Fret not, this bug was only in the 0.1.1 CVS and not in the older releases.
These features are newly implemented in version 0.1 of the dialer. The features specified in the older releases still exist unless mentioned otherwise. The current release is v0.2
- QT Independent core console dialer
- QT based UI implemented as a plugin
The Heartbeat functionality has been removed from v0.1. The reason for that is that to actually utilize the hearbeat functionality one needs to keep the dialer on. This will be best served with a tray icon plugin. Anyone interested?
These features are implemented in version 0.0.1 of the dialer. The current release is v0.2
- QT based GUI :-) (absent in the stock dialer provided by Sify)
- Encrypted password storage
- HeartBeat to keep connection alive
- XML based configuration file
