    Question Anyway to mask your IP...

    So no one else can see it?

    On a straight windows machine no you can't, many people will tell you that you can. There are very misinformed, I've worked on security before and windows isn't capable of truely spoofing the ip against any serious tool out there.

    In order to get something like this you need an anonymous proxy server, this prevents 90% of tools from spotting your ip.

    If you don't mind me asking why do you need this? Is it a problem with someone messing with your machine?

    Yes, I am getting 600 hits a day with Zone Alarm from the same few source's.
    So far nothing has come of it, but I don't want to wait untill they figure a way around ZoneAlarm.

    I have @Home cable. If I could either mask my IP or make it appear as a different one I maybe able to stop the scans.

    Hell I don't know, I know very little about the way the net works. I wonder if I can get @home to change my IP. I have 3 comps with 3 IP's, but the other two have no probs with getting scanned. I switched IP's from my other comp with this one, but now it gets scanned all day. This one only gets hit a few times probably just from website servers not closing down right.

    I may just drop a $100-200 for a router and keep 1 IP that is not being messed with.

    I believe that I read a report somewhere that Windows.XP will allow the IP address to be masked. Not that his is necessarily a good thing.

    Get a router, then you'll be hidden. I never get hits on Zone Alarm since adding my router

    Your router should have a built in hardware firewall dosn't it? What kind of router are you using?

    My roommate and I use the linksys router/switch for his three and my one computers. Not only is it a router, but it will allow for a good game of Q3 every once in a while

    Yeah I was looking at the Linksy's. Sounds like people are having good luck with them for the small home networks. I have 3 $20 NC100 10/100 cards of theirs and have no probs at all with them. All the comps are very snappy with loading webpages and downloading. I may break down and buy one soon. I plan on building some more SETI crunchers soon anyway and would like a way to hook them up to without paying the $5/month per extra IP. And it has the built in firewall so I can do away with ZoneAlarm and save a few more system resources, althoug it dosn't take alot.

    Steve Gibson's site is where I read the article about Windows.XP allowing masking of IP address.

    And again, this is not necessarily good.

    Zone ALarm is supposed to put you in stealth mode so that no one can tell if your on the net. If you are still getting hits, perhaps you have had a trojan/server on your system at some point. Best to do a thorough scan of your system with up-to-date virus scanner. You can also double check with an online scan from, Symantec has a FREE virus and security scan here: http://security1.norton.com/us/intro...=sym&langid=us
    I have found the online scan to be useful as a followup, sometimes it picks up things that another brand might miss.

    I have the 4 port Linksys Router and the 2 port Linksys Print Server. The Print Server allows my Printer to hooked up directly to my LAN instead of a computer. Both of them work quite well and are real easy to set up

    DOS, crude but effective.
    Personally I prefer subvert, less whistles and it relies on the weakest link. Human curiosity.

    a router (also called a 'gateway') is a hardware firewall, by definition.
