Masking your IP address

  Ronald2008 10:39 11 Sep 2008

I live in India and I work for a US company and need to log on to sites based in the US, the work is not illegal in any way. On many occasions when I log on the site does not allow me access since my IP address indicates that I am from India.

Is there any way I can mask my IP address so that the site on which I log on does not get to know my Country from where I am logging in.

strikes me that this is an issue for you to take up with your US company, and not with this forum.

The fact that you mention 'the work is not illegal in any way' suggests that it might well be dodgy to my mind.

Thanks Marko797

I know if may sound dodgy but it is just bending the rules thats all.
I have taken it up the company in US and they are looking at it. Just wanted to find out for my self annot seem to be one who waits for for solutions without trying to find one.

There are many geeks here so I though I would try and find out.

thanks anyway

Ooh! That'll go down well. I doubt you're working for the US Diplomatic Corps.

Hi picklefactory,

That was great information. I will check it out and see if it can be used.

Thanks once again

I think you have spilt the beans

Ooops! Was that a secret? Simple Google search can find that without much issue.

No, never had any need to try it myself. But I've seen posts on PCA before relating to using this type of thing. Maybe try a search on here for proxy servers.
