Then there is the other solutiopn I already mentioned,
that I am using, while covering the Olympics in China.
You just install your own DHCP server on your own
server elswhere, and then configure it to be open
to any machine in the world. One guy might have
called me a "troll" for mentioning that, but it does
work.

If you have any kind of broadband service with
multiple IPs, this can be done. You just configure
the network settings of whatever machine you are
accessing the net from and enter the IP address
in the field for machine to use an an Internet
gateway, and then speficy your ISPs DNS server as the
server to use as DNS lookup, then you just simply
reboot the machine, and they next time you connect
to the Net, you will be using your broadband ISP
as the gateway. Since THEY are carrying the traffic,
what you do will be INVISIBLE to the admins at
St Pancras Station, or wherever you are.

Because I am doing this, while in China to cover the
Olympics, what I do on the Net will be INVISIBLE to the
Chinese authorites, becuase it is MY server that carries
all the trafficc, and acts as the gateway maching, instead
of the local machines in China. My activities cannot be
monitored or detected becuase of this.

Our server is colocated in California, so I will appear to
be in the United States, becuase when my server acts as
the gateway, it fetches an IP from the available pool of
IP address from my ISP, and releases that to me.

Because of a proposed internet filtering regime in Australia
we have alreadhy taken steps to avoid that by going through
a server colocated in the United States. Becuase our server
acts as a gateway and releases IPs to the machiens at our
radio station, what we do will NOT BE DETECTED by anyone
running the proposed filtering regime in Australia, should
it become law. What I do with our servers, makes what I
do on the Net UNDETECTABLE, no matter WHAT part of the
world I travel to.

Like I said, I got this idea from a chap I was chatting
with in one of my chat rooms who does this. He uses an
open DHCP he found in Thailand, and changed the network
settings on his PC at work, so that it uses the DHCP on
the gateway machine in Thailand to get an IP, and surfs
the net that way. Becuase he is using the machine in
Thailand to get an IP, instead of his workplace servers,
his admins have no CLUE as to what he is up to, becuase
his activities are undetectable. He bypasses filtering,
monitoring, and all logging at the firewall.

And a properly configured firewall would already be set to block
anything like that.

You sound like the old Chilly, always looking for a way to circumvent
security, always failing to understand that it's easy to block that
stuff in/on a properly secured network.
