Sounds like he is just trying to get an IP address so it looks like hes in the US. Probably trying to join some US-only site or something. Just use a proxy.

Like the guy said, use a proxy. It will mask your real ip adress and replace it. If you want to use a proxy to play a game or something (i.e. Japanese MapleStory) Then use SoftVPN. I'm almost positive its legal.

Ereos,

I need to clear up some information here.

Warcraft 3 Online i play in US East... nowadays people are being picky who they play with in US East and only play with people with the latency of US

and if you're not from US you are seen as you're always bound to drop, lag...etc

you know how people are picky in US servers they dont like to play with foreign people on online computer gaming

Changing your IP address will not change anything. You still live across the pond, and it will still take that long to travel. A proxy is like this: there is a game server in North Carolina, USA. You are located in Great Britain. For the game to talk to you, it sends little packets of information through a bunch of different servers to eventually get to you. A proxy is just a service that makes you look like you are located in New York instead of GB. The little packets still have to go from North Carolina to you, it just goes to New York, then New York sends you the packets. You will not be any faster. If there are people out there who care enough about playing with foreign people to look at the IP address of everybody they play with, they'll be able to look past a proxy anyways. We can certainly help you set up a proxy, I just want to make sure that you understand what is going on here.

i'm gonna agree here...if someone is running a game server and they've blocked "foreign" ip addresses...then they've probably also blocked proxied connections as well

Angst recommended SoftVPN. I have never used a proxy, so you may want to wait for more input regarding that.

xD Looks like I'm the only one that has done this before? Well, with the games I play i.e. Japanese Maplestory, Soft VPN basically masks your IP address, but only serverside of the company that runs the game. Therefore, what you're doing is basically tricking the company into thinking you are where you are not.

See if that source if any help. I used it to connect to Japanese Maple Story. Just skip to the connection part.
