Hi All,
Here is my experiment with Reliance Wi-Max Broadband connection in
Linux CLI.

The wi-max connection only allow login in through http.
So we first you need to create the login page(Find my worked example file)

File named form.htm

copy this file to your linux box.

dont forget to change userid &password values and the permission of file(chmod )

Install Lynx in Linux box if it is already installed.

connect your Broadband connetion to LAN port.
type /sbin/ifconfig
if the connection is OK,you will get output some thing like this

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:60:04:84:B1:D2
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::250:4ff:fe74:c1d2/64 Scope:Link
RX packets:1500 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:7 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:180049 (175.8 Kb) TX bytes:810 (810.0 b)
Interrupt:20 Base address:0xe000

If the connection is not OK you will not get the public IP.

Then type the following command

lynx -cmd_log=login form.htm

This will put you into Reliance Web Login Window
Press down arrow key two times and then left arrow or enter key
After login you can browse any sites,
for this press g and enter URL like http://www.google.com and press enter.
If it is working press q and y to exit from lynx browser.

After exiting from lynx give the below command

lynx -cmd_script=login

If it is not working edit the file “/etc/lynx.cfg”
and find the line startting with STARTFILE:
then change the line shown

(here admin is the current user form is the file which we have copied)

Then we need to edit the crontab file .
(If there is no network activity for some time the login session may terminate
so that you need to relogin.This crontab file will run the script every 30 minute)
Run these commands

crontab -e
press i for insert

30 * * * * lynx -cmd_script=login


for write and exit

That is it..!!

Now you have configured Reliance wi max connection which is always up..
