    Hey

    Not sure if this is in the right place so feel free to move it if need be.

    Anyways, I'm having a bit of trouble trying to find a proxy program that will allow me to mask my actual ip address.

    What I mean by this is:

    I can mask the ip that shows up in browsers so that when I go to google instead of coming up google uk (where I live) it shows google australia (for instance). But the problem I am having is how exactly to change the ip that appears in my connection status at the bottom right hand corner of my screen.

    I have several internet programs that I use which still register me as having my regular ip address and as a result I am not able to use them as I would like.

    Any ideaso_O?

    Either JAP or TOR will mask your real IP

    Not entirly sure what you mean by this, I have one idea, but that would make no sense, can you elaborate on what exactly in the bottom right corner of your screen is telling you your IP? The first three numbers of this are not 192.xxx.xx.x are they?

    Yeah that's what I mean really, the little blue computer monitor I have at the bottom of my screen that shows my connection status.

    When I right-click/status/support I get an ip address starting with 192.

    What does this mean?

    Ok, that is your local IP, the IP assigned to your computer by your router, it is quite possibly 192.168.0.2 it is not visable to the outside world, it is to allow your router to communicate with your computer.

    In a word, Tor. It s the best anonymous proxy out there and its free.
