Networking question

Recommended Posts

Guest Neezer

I have a question that I think you people might be able to answer.

 

I want to set something up that will mask my IP address. I want to be able to access a website from my home computer and have that website think that my ip address is a different one than it really is. example:

 

My IP is A. I want to access a site from home and have that site think that my IP is B. Then I want to easily be able to access the same site from the same computer and have the site think that my IP is A, my real IP address. Is there a simple way to do this?

In effect a proxy server acts as a middleman for your internet traffic. Websites you access will see the IP associated with the proxy server; and the proxy server translates/re-routes the traffic to your physical IP.

A very easy to setup proxy/firewall is IPCop. It's a linux based firewall that has an easy to use web interface. It will also allow you to create aliases if you have multiple public IP addresses meaning your single NIC in your IPCop box can have multiple IPs assigned to it.
