Hey Everyone,

I'm trying to find a way to use a proxy to appear to be browsing from a particular location (Richmond, Virginia). I'm able to mask my IP using one of the many free proxy sites available, but none that I have found allow you to choose a general area to appear to be browsing from.

My preferred browser is Google chrome where I have attempted to use the proxy settings in:

Settings > Change proxy settings > Connections (tab) > Lan Settings (button at bottom)

And then proceeding to paste the IP address I wish to appear as and the port number. The problem I'm having is finding a proxy that will let me load webpages.

I considered the proxy at:


But the payment screen was in Russian and I didn't feel it was credible nor was I able to fill in the payment form.

Just wondering if it's possible to appear as a particular IP address using a proxy and if anyone knows how it can be done? Any help is much appreciated!!


Also my Chrome version is Version 23.0.1271.97 m and I would be happy to use any other browsers on Windows if it's simpler to solve the problem.
