virtual ip

Specs: Windows 7
I would like to create a virtual PC on my network using my existing PC. My router should detect the virtual pc and assign an IP address to it.

I can then use the virtual IP to bypass download restrictions on certain download sites that filter IP adresses.

The virtual IP and my PC's IP must be able to receive connections and download simultaneously.

Is there any software that can create this virtual PC ?

Well any vitalization software will sort of do this, but if you are worried about sites that block by your IP address it won't work. The IP address these websites see is your external IP address assigned by your ISP. All the PCs on your local network will share that same IP address.

In my network, the PC beside me can download as well.

"All the PCs on your local network will share that same IP address." --> so this is not true.

can i have some examples or virtualization software ?

will the virtual machine be able to download (using a different IP) simultaneously ?

Oh but it is!. All PCs on the same network share the same external or public IP address. That is the one the rest of the world sees regardless of what IP address is allocated to each individual computer which will be an internal private address.

What you are trying to do will not work as there is no such thing as a virtual IP Address. It could be made to work if you you install a second Netwrok Interface Card and allocates that a real IP address in the same range as the rest of the network. A NIC can only work to one IP address at a time.

However, it still wont do anything for your download restrictions. That is dependent on your public IP address and that is allocated by your ISP.

Some details about the network you're on might help us figure out why you think it is possible.

Is this a work environment, a college, a university, or is it your home network?

Since it sounds like you can download from the same site, from multiple computers on your network simultaneously, you are not restricted by IP address. More likely than not, the websites you are using employee cookies, sessions, etc. to prevent you from having concurrent downloads. A virtual PC (try MS Virtual PC, VMWare, etc.) will work in that case. Of course, there may be better options, for example just using two different browsers (firefox and IE) can get around some of those restrictions.

Rapidshare is using IP based filtering, right ?
