Need Help Getting Multiple Unique IPs

Hello Geeks

I am going to be needing ways to get unique IP addresses from the same location and would like to brainstorm with some knowledgeable people. I want to know the ins and out of every method, and anything at all creative. Here is just some brainstorming.

1) First I can get a DSL, satellite, and cable modem. This should be 3 separate IPs. Question: I'm told that if you turn off your modem and turn it back on you can get another address. Also I'm told if you do this, you also need to have a whole different computer online! Because places are sophisticated enough to know if you have the same computer. Anyone?

2) There is some technology that allows another computer user to access my computer screen. The Verizon online guy did this to help me with my email. When he gets on my computer, lets say he goes to a site, is that using his IP or mine or both?

Thanks

Your not making much sense. Whyw ould you want to do this? Doing it the way you are suggesting is going to cost you alot of money. I would suggest calling your current ISP and inquire about purchasing static Ip's.

When you connect through a dial-up or dedicated connection without using static IP addresses, you are dynamically assigned a numeric IP address which is used for the duration of the connection. Since everyone does not connect at the same time, this allows more efficient use of the limited pool of IP addresses. You retain this IP as long as your modem maintains a connection. Once you disconnect, you lose that IP address, and are assigned a new one next time you connect.

If you need to always have the same IP then you'll have to contact your ISP to get a static address.

There are many programs available to access a machine remotely. What are your plans, what will the IP's be used for. I could help you if you give me an idea what you are doing. Will you be hosting out of your home?

Okay a bit more detail.

I'm team leader for an online casino team. I'm going to need to access online casinos from one physical location for many different computers. If the casinos see that there is IP or computer sharing they will not be happy and could take devastating measures.

So here's what will happen: a nice wager will appear and I will want to wager on it from my account, but also the accounts of all the other investors. Instead of having everyone make their bets separately, its best to do them all at once and streamline things.

I did just call Verizon and was told that I could purchase only 1 static IP line so that doesn't do anything for me.

So I'm interested in whatever technology I can use to have as many computers as possible hooked up with their own unique IPs. For starters I have a DSL, cable, and satellite and am interested in remote access, anonymizing stuff, ANYTHING.

Would appreciate any help and possibly be interested in further private consultation if anyone appears to be a real stud at this.

LOL so let me get this straight, you want us to figure out how you and your team can be at a same table with each other, play the hand up and share what each other is holding in each hand and screw over legitimate players and the site?

And you need the multiple ip's because you know these sites track ip's to see if people are doing this scam on them.
I wont be apart of it and im sure most others wont either.

Nice try!!!

I'm with cnmsales. This is a HIGHLY inappropriate question to ask on this (or any) forum where people are trying to get help with legitimate problems that are crippling their productivity or ruining their (legal use of their) leisure time.

This is why I don't like to get into details.

a) Its not for poker, its for sports. Also, if I wanted to cheat in poker wouldn't 3 separate computers be enough? And how about IM? Clearly this isn't for poker.

b) Its not illegal (insofar as online gambling is not illegal). There is nothing illegal about a team of players all taking Lakers +4. The only thing "wrong" with it is if one of us wins, then they'll see the association and boot everyone.

Well I don't know if this is enough to reconsider your positions....

Defensive! lol

So if this is "wrong", then you would be breaking their rules and regulations, which may not be "illegal"...but is WRONG, as you plainly said. This is not something appropriate for this forum. This topic is being closed.
