Make my IP address appear to be from another country

Several friends said they have done it with a proxy address. Is there a quick/easy way of doing it without having to purchase advertized software? I am able to get originating IP address with $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']

It is impossible to spoof your ip address over the open internet over a TCP connection due to the Three Way Handshake. PHP's $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] pulls the ip address directly from apaches tcp socket and there for cannot be influenced. It is likely that you are looking for a proxy server.

Just realize you are using a public proxy so don't send anything sensitive.
