Question Can i hide my ip under linux with adsl modem ?

Hi everybody ?
i wanna ask a question ? can i hide my ip address under linux with adsl modem ? i dont want to be a hacker or etc. i just dont want some sites to log my ip address for example mail , forums sites etc. i know there are some anonymous proxy sites so you can surf anonymous but in fact it has problems coz such as yahoo hotmail sites need access to cookies to log in so sometimes errors has occured because of this reason. and also i cant hide my ip under Xchat? .... how can i hide ip adress with under linux or maybe can i use my adsl modem settings to hide my ip ?

as long as your NOT doing anything illegal, why worry about it.......???

You should read up on TCP/IP.........and understand it better......
then you should be able to figure out "how" you can do it on your own..

You can't hide your external IP address, because it's necessary for other sites to know it in order to communicate with you. You could go through proxies for a lot of different services (although not all services are proxiable), but it seems you don't want to use proxies.

There are many ways to do this, some of which are beyond the scope of a friendly forum like this. I would suggest maybe looking into using proxy chains and chaining mass number of proxies together and try and use thoose applications like this:

proxychains nmap arguments host

But good luck finding proxies that support CONNECT method.

For most basic apps you may be able to set up a transparent proxying for daily task. Me personally, it depends on the site/sites I visit. Every time you fire up that browser your opening yourself to the outside world and trusting the other party on the other end. And then sometimes as 320mb said if your not doing anything naughty then just skate through it. You will be suprised how much time you will end up wasting trying to be anonymous when there really is no true remedy to that.

Big Sister is always watching. She created the net, why would it let you walk in her shadows? So share yourself with me and everyone else because that's the way it should be pal.
