    Hey everyone,


    Wondering if there is any program for Windows XP that will block my IP address from unwanted people (meaning everyone). I used to have one but lost it. Any ideas?

    Firewall? XP Home/Pro has one built in. There are better software ones out there, but it seems the one that comes with it should be sufficient for your needs.

    Do you have a router in between your pc(s) and modem?

    Yes I do.



    I use firewalls but does that programs / internet seeing your ip? I was looking for a program like that, if it even exists.

    Look into proxy servers.

    Having said that, if you are trying to get around an IP block on a forum, just quit being an asshole.

    If that's the case a firewall is what you need.

    Someone knowing your ip isn't a terrible thing :dunno:
    If you're that worried about it use a proxy for everything but thats really just being a whiny pussy about things. Your friends in all likelyhood can't do anything to you, and wouldn't even if they could.
    If they're such dicks about it give them a good :OP:

    Disconnecting to the internet...

    That pretty well sums up your three options. Anyone tells there is software that you can simply load on any machine that will hide your external IP address is wrong!
