    I am querying a publically available website (it is a .gov website, so it is information i can get and don't need to worry about) for some information from a web service i have written, i would like to rotate IP's just for personal reasons - are there proxy servers that allow for this? Is this how they work?

    I know shit about them :hs:

    most online proxies are web proxies (i.e. through a browser). since you're using a web service you wrote you'd have to program it to interface with a proxy, like a socks proxy or something.

    although i've never done it you could probalby use Privoxy + Tor for your web services as well. you'd install privoxy on your box which sets up a local proxy and configure it to connect to the Tor network. Then you'd configure your web service to make all it's web requests to your local privoxy server.
