I want to spoof my internet ip on my Ubuntu 10.10 system so that I can access country specific websites. Can some one please tell me how to go about this?


You would either need a proxy server or a public vpn service. You cannot just spoof your IP address or the internet won't work for you.

  • can you suggest me a good free proxy server for uk – CircuitBug Apr 23 '11 at 11:13

There's always tor.

Its free and there's a setup guide for vidalia (the gui client) here: https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian-vidalia.html.en

To force yourself coming out of a UK exit node, you can edit your .torrc file and add ExitNodes{UK} at the end of it. See more in the Tor documentation.
