Changing your IP address so it looks like you're from another state


 Share

Question

I have an IP address from San Diego California. When you look up the IP address it does say San Diego California. I do not want this. I am going to connect to someone and i DO NOT want them to be able to look at my IP address (which they will be able to do) and see that it is from San Diego.

I want that it reads from another state. Was wondering how you would do this.

Use a proxy, theres a huge list at http://www.proxy.org (this will only work if its a browser thing)

Move to another state, and get Internet Service in that state..

Seriously, there's only about 1.3 million people in San Deigo, and about 37 million people in California. It's not like any one could really track you down simply by knowing which city you live in. Especially one of that size.

Maybe Im missing something here - but I don't see where the OP stated he was going to be using a http to connect. If not web proxy might not work, nor does using tor mean that all traffic goes through the tor connection.

http://www.torproject.org/download.html.en#Warning

Tor only protects Internet applications that are configured to send their traffic through Tor ? it doesn't magically anonymize all your traffic just because you install it.

So what application is the poster using to connect?

I just don't see any legit reason for this in the first place.. So what if they know your coming from SD area?

I saw this post originally but didn't reply then. I was thinking he's trying to connect to a clients machine or something but didn't want a far away IP address to show up. It's almost like the thing where salemen get local numbers from different areas and forward them to 1 phone since not everyone has long distance (i guess, lol ) and if you're in NY and see some 407 (FL) number on this guys business card, you might not be interested (for whatever reason).

So to change IP address from another state, you can't really as it's leased to you via your ISP. Sometimes WIFI Hotspots have IP ranges from Indiana or something so even if you are in FL it'll show like you are in Indiana. I am at Starbucks now using Wayport (AT&T bought them). I am in CT but it shows i'm in Kansas! LOL.
