    hidden I.P. address

    anyone know a good program that will hide the IP address and perhaps even use overseas addresses. some sites eg BBC will only allow some content for UK residents only.
    Thanks

    Hello rdgc1,

    Welcome to the Lounge.
    You can check the Tor Project. You will get different IPs, but the country those IPs are from cannot be guaranteed. Alternatively, you can try using a proxy server, even if some servers will detect that the proxy's IP is not your own.

    now here is a twist, I do have a broadband connection in the UK at another house, is there any way I can make my US connection appear to come from the UK address?

    Seems Tor can be configured for that: http://www.how-to-hide-ip.info/2009/...e-running-tor/
