Hi folks,

WinXP
IE6


Where can I download a free anonymous proxy software to hide my IP address on surfing. My ISP proxy server does not work. My IP address is easily discovered.

TIA

In reality, you will find that most proxy servers allow a back trace...this is because most web sites will not let you surf them if they can't trace you back...this supposedly stops hackers.

There are a few of them out there...

My personal reflections on this is that unless you are up to no good it is really a waste of time and has been known to slow your downloads/uploads waaaaaaayyyyyydown!

Just running some good spyware/malware/virus protection behind a good firewall is the best way to go!

I succeed making Firefox surfing with IP address hidden. Even those companies selling products for this purpose can't discover it. My ISP's proxy server also provides this service hiding IP address. But the IP address can easily be back traced.

It is Open Source technology. However I can't make the same software work on IE6

er of the top of my head if your looking for something free that runs on the client (your machine) then tor would be your only option.
its slow though, like very slow; if your lieing in your first post and are actually trying to surconvent something, the time that it would take to actually produce the desired content is to long. If your just doing it to be secure then no wait is to long.

Hi bmustillrose,


Thank for your advice.

I heard Tor and Privoxy before but never use them

My friend expects to enjoy the free American online TV which is only available for domestic users. He lives outside USA. He turned to me for advice whether there was a solution. I told him using a proxy server to visit those TV sites. He got in but dissatifying the slow speed. He turned to me again for assistance. I succeeded browsing those sites on Firefox running on Linux, using SwitchProxy, the free addon. Unfortunatey he is running IE6 on Windows. I can't make SwitchProxy running on IE6. I found many proprietary solutions on Internet but they are not free. If I can't find a solution I would advise my friend to install Firefox on Windows. FF is cross-platform and free to use.
