I wanna download some "stuff" but I wanna hide my IP address when I download. Anybody know how to. Someone told me when I use a proxy or something, it won't work, is that true? Does anybody know a real way to completely hide your IP address when downloading the stuff, so there is NO WAY anybody can track me.

What a lying friend you have. :p if you use a proxy to download something, it'll download the file using proxy.

So can anybody answer my questions? Does proxy completely block your IP when downloading so that NOBODY, not even the FBI can see my IP? And VPN cost money right? I want a method that is free.

"stuff" = porn :coolface:
OT: NOBODY? That's not possible. Not even a VPN can hide you from the FBI :blink: WTF do you want to download :blink:

Are you sure, how about something that can at least hide your IP from most people.

Cool, so is this good enough so that I won't get in trouble for downloading something like music or games?

What site are you downloading from? I haven't heard of anyone actually getting caught downloading music or video games. You can use something free like Hotspot Shield , OpenVPN, or ProXPN, or a cheap VPN like Hide My Ass! Pro or UnblockVPN. Your chances of getting caught are like 1 in 100,000 :0

Lol it's not local law enforcement that investigates copywrite infringement and the other 50 "laws" they've decided to tie to pirating.

I have a question, is it super safe when I download from MegaUpload because MegaUpload is like MediaFire(super popular download sites), everyone downloads from it so it'd be nearly impossible for someone to track ALL those IPs and find mine right?

Doesn't Matter. They Know Where I sleep : (
TronTron is right, you should use Tor, or I guess if you had firefox you could use something like FoxyProxy and above that i2p (for .i2p websites) In any case, this is what I do --- a little extreme though....

VMPlayer - 45GB XP Box (NAT)
Tor, i2p (darknet access), Firefox
