Plusnet proxy server?
"Gareth Davies" wrote in
I know that Plusnet doesn't provide a proxy server for web access. I
also know that Plusnet uses static IP addresses. I'm a bit concerned
about the fact that these 2 things allow websites to identify me: I've
already received what seems to be targetted spam from Network
Associates to a non disclosed e-mail address I assume on the basis of
visiting their website and downloading an evaluation version.
Is there any way I can hide my IP address - maybe by using another
There are some anonymising proxies out there which are free to use - google
for "anonymizing proxy". There used to be a web-based service at
silentsurf.com but the site seems to be down at the mo.
I wouldn't rely too much on the privacy these services offer though.
