Lightbulb Anonymous surfing ?


Hi all,

A friend of mine said he was using a tool under windoz in order to surf on the net without being detected. ( P2P, WWW )

As far as i know, we must use a anonymous proxy server.
Are there any similar tools for linux ?

Regards,

Pierre

hi,

here is a tool with which you can surf anonymous. The program is available for Windoze, Linux/Unix , Mac, OS/2, PocketPC (only Beta version) or you can compile yourself. for more details please read the infos on the page...

Tks for this answer.
Will test it for surfing tonite.

But when looking at the doc, i read this :

Code:
File sharing and other peer-to-peer programs (for example, KaZaa, Morpheus, EDonkey)?
No, anonymization is not possible! 
The potential for abuse (for example, in the form of copyright infringement)
 is too high and we want to use our limited personel resources for the
 research project rather than for dealing with complaints. 

Furthermore, such services require a very large bandwidth and 
thus cause significant costs.
Does that mean that Torrent, p2p or CVS sharing will be unavalaible anonymously as well ?

Regards,

Pierre

forgot about all that software crap, don't need any of it. that software just changes the gateway to a proxy in your routing table for port 80 traffic. that's it. don't need no software to do that just manual do it yourself, becuase who knows what other possibly malicious things are in that software. do you really trust it, without the source. I wouldn't that for sure.

as to why it only works for surfing... most free proxies will only give you port 80 ... i.e. http web.

torrent, instant message and all other programs use a different port so oh well. most free proxies are nothing more than web analyzers to see what sites you are going too... marketing and stuff. because who ever owns the proxy knows everything about you and can keep a detailed record. much more detailed than if you weren't using a proxy. unless you trust the proxy, i.e. it is yours or someone you know.

Tks for this ... i've tested this on Konqueror and Firefox
It seems to work fine. Different test design to guess my ip adress show the Proxy Server
really nice.

Only Java can bypass this apparently.

Anonymous Web Surfing Info

Anonymous web surfing sites allow you to bypass work filters by fetching the website’s data themselves, and then sending it back to you through the free anonymizer. These free anonymous surfing sites are powered by software that resides on the server. Not only do they allow you to circumvent filters put in place by network administrators, they also protect your online privacy by masking your IP Address, thus allowing you to surf the web anonymously. When you surf without a free anonymizer, your computer is exposed to all types of potentially harmful content (like viruses and spyware), and your personal information can easily be recorded by data trackers, effectively eliminating any privacy at work.
