    Hello everybody. I would like to know if there is a free program that will let me surf the web anonymously. (not show my real IP)

    Thanks

    BillC has given you a list of web based proxies to try, when you've exhausted them, and if you can't find what you want, you could try a personal proxy.

    you can set up a single proxy in internet options or you could download a program like multiproxy and have an unlimited number of proxies.

    I've answered numerous posts on this subject in the forum - do a search for "proxy" or "multiproxy" in this forum and you should find out all you need to know.

    Okay, I finally got it to work, and I had it set to rotate servers every 5 seconds. The 2 issues I noticed were some images weren't coming through, which isn't a problem.

    The 2nd problem is that it's like the DNS servers are totally messed up, because I go to ipchicken.com and it's some screwed up site, and www.google.com says "UNDER CONSTRUCTION" etc.

    Any ideas?

    The only way of surfing anonymously is by routing your requests through a proxy somewhere on the Internet. Every TCP packet from your machine contains your MAC address and IP address in the header. :)
