    Hide Your IP Address - A Tutorial
    Whoever you are, anonymity is your right!




    With proxy server u can hide your IP on the net. Which means while u r posting on a forum, sending a email, chatting with someone and whatnot, your real IP will not be revealed. Follow the steps to do the same

    1. Go to http://www.proxy4free.com/page1.html and Copy any IP with high anonymity along with its port number.

    2. Open Internet explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Connections Tab > Lan Settings > Check the box which says "Use a Proxy Server for your LAN......"

    3. Paste the IP in the Address field and Port in the Port field

    4. OK

    5. Apply

    6. OK


    Now to verify if your proxy server is working or not Go to
    http://www.whatismyip.com/ and check your IP, if you are unble to open any sites, then your proxy server is dead. In that case choose another proxy from http://www.proxy4free.com/page1.html





    Hope that was useful.

    Out of curiosity, don't these proxy servers object to you using their bandwith without paying for it ?

    Some will - however many may simply have been misconfigured by inexperienced admins who have mistakenly given access to everyone. Some of the servers listed in that link are based in China which, as everyone should know, tries hard to monitor and control Internet traffic.

    It is worth noting that while using a proxy server can hide your IP address from sites you visit, it does nothing to conceal your activites from your ISP - therefore services using encryption (commerical ones like Anonymizer or Cotse as well as free ones like Tor and JAP) are a better option for those who wish to get closer to "online invisibility".

    Does it reduces the internet (surfing) speed?
