    Default Hmm, Is this possible?

    Alright before you comment, Im thinking in perspective to sockets.

    Before I go to my question, Ill show an example of what I mean.

    A simple socket to connect to a server can be created like:

    new Socket(host, port);

    The client connects to the said host, if possible.

    The host then receives the client, and the client ip can be just about anything e.g somthing like: (this is just an example)
    69.247.35.162
    I know of proxxie's and http connections, but is it possible to alter the above ^ (ip), when connecting to a server with java.net.socket?

    e.g hiding your i.p or, changing to another.

    If you don't give the server your IP address, how will it be able to respond to you?

    I thought the actual Socket object it self would provide a way to overcome that.

    In a short answer, no, you cannot "change" the appearance of your IP. The IP is needed to ensure data is being streamed to/from the correct location. Ports are only used so your computer can decide which application(s) should get the information on the destination computer.

    The only way to hide your IP is to go through a proxy, which has it's own IP (usually more than one IP), then you send requests to the proxy which in turn send a duplicate request to the destination, so the destination would only see the proxy's IP, not yours.
