your IP will be provided by your ISP.... why on earth do you want to change it? you can change it if you want.... you can make it whatever you want... it won't work though....

I presume you want to hide your true IP address from the internet, in the sense of a firewall.

A full answer would be impossible within a forum.

Check for HOW-TOs on NAT (Network address translation), ipchains (Firewall) and IP Masquerading. There's a wealth of tutorials and primers. Read up on what you want, and implement. If you're protecting a home machine/network, a hardware router may do the same job more simply for not too many pennies. I bought a second hand d-link router that does this for 20.

What's the purpose you're asking this for? Browsing? IRC?

sounds suspicious to me, give us a valid, morally acceptable reason why you'd want to do this and someone might be able to offer some suggestions ...

well yes, but anyone with the skill to break into your system in the first place is going to be able to evade your masks, you'd be alot better looking into getting your system security inline, then it dosnt matter who knows your ip address

I would be interested in knowing how to do it for IRC. I'm an op in a few channels and i get all kinds of crazy stuff if i ban or kick people. hiding my ip would be a nice thing. maybe a way to kill the DNS query, but i think thats a request from a server. if you do have some information on this i would be interested in knowing!

Trolsbane !!! on the www.stayinvisible.com are only HTTP proxys, also NOT good for IRC, Radix need socks 4 and 5 proxys, this proxys are for connect method.

Radix I have solution for you:

When you use undernet network, and when you have a username, you can very simple hidde your ip with command:

/mode yournick +x

and so you will get a ip like youruser.users.undernet.org and nobody can see you ip (only the IRC ops can see behind this fake ip) also no atack to you, all is fine.

When you don`t have a username please visit:

http://www.cservice.undernet.org/live and there you can make a username, you must have a ISP mail for this because the yahoo and the other free mails are blocked because users abuse. After you make a username you must login with it in Mirc with command (to status) :

/msg x@channels.undernet.org login youruser password
after login type :

/mode yournick +x and you get the fake IP !!!

That is valable for undernet newtork !!! when do you use quakenet thic method is valable too, if you use dalnet you can`t hidde the ip through this method, also you must use a socks proxy to connect, so you have the proxy ip also your real ip can`t be seen.

I have the nick Nikulai on undernet network, I am daily there on channel #help_on and #motani when do you want that we speak please query me, and tell here your nick and channel please. If you use another network please mail me to dan20@flash.ro or give me an answer here in forum on which IRC network do you use and the nick and channels.
