Everything is going well

Finally you guys are on my way, by the way last night, I ask permission to a friend (windows user) to try to get into his PC, I could not, he's kind of well protected, ans this is what I mean, I'm not trying to steal a bank or place a skull in my avatar with a nick like "I am god of computers", please, I just wanna be an expert, and I love to know how everything works, I am a Computer Engineering Student, and I just like to get a lil bit further...

Well thanks for all the comments, I am not agreed on mixing hackers with crackers, or even worse with lammers or script-kiddies, these are all differents...

And finally I installed tor and privoxy, and I think they work well, If not, I'll check how this packages work...

Thanks again for the coments, greetings guys.

Do you know what MAC or IP spoofing is? If not google it, I am not gonna question your intentions or motives as you are free to do what you want?

Spoofing is modifying data using either a 3rd party appliance or using programming to change its original content to something designated by the user.

MAC (Unique physical identifiers which all network related hardware posseses, e.g - PC NIC, router etc) spoofing allows the user to change their MAC address to something they specify.

IP spoofing isn't really needed on a LAN as it would be kinda pointless, and your IP address can be assigned with ifconfig or TCP/IP settings in Windows.

If you google it, that should give you the answers.

As already mentioned, using spoofing or anything which circumvents security of any type on a system which you don't own or have access too (or are the Administrator for) is a criminal offense in any respectable country.

If curiosity alone drives you, then I suggest you create your own network (or ask someone who you know who owns a private network) to play with.

Wink Hiding your IP

To hide your IP use VPN service, you can find many across the web. Personally, I've tried many of them and I like *HIDE-MY-IP* the most. They offer excellent services, the support is great also. They mask your true IP by letting you to choose which IP and from what country you want. With it you can access sites which you usually wouldn't be allowed to and you can remove Netflix restrictions, etc...
