    Hi
    I was wondering if anyone could help me out with an ISP question>.....I went to a chat server where ppl can see the city and state that I am dialing from by doing a "whois" on my nicname!...Is there anyway to hide that while on a chat server?...I don't think it's real safe having ppl know exactly what city and state your in when it comes to chatrooms! So if anyone if familiar with how i could hide the city and state i'm dialing from..I sure would appreciate ..Thank You

    I'm guessing that this information is provided in your domain (i.e. the IP address of your computer in words instead of numbers). This is done in many ISPs. The only way I can think of to hide something like that would be to connect to the chat room via a proxy. How you do this depends on what kind of a chat room it is, if it is just an HTML or JS chat room (one that is right on a web page) then you could probably defeat it easily by running your connection through a proxy. Go to www.silentsurf.com or www.the-cloak.com to find one. If it is not an HTML chat, it might be more complicated. What kind of chat room is it?

    How do I find out if the chat server is HTML chat or JS chat?......The server I am trying to connect to that reveals all this information is called Chatuniverse.com If you let me know how I can find out what kind of a chat server this is I will get back to you. Thank You
