    Smile How to conceal my IP address


    I have a machine, a server, with an IP address as normal. I want to make it as invisible as possible to the outside world, but I need access to the web and to one or two remote sites.


    Can this be done? If my machine's IP address is not visible, would that make my machine hacker-proof? Is there a quick way of checking how hacker-proof my machine is or not?

    Any other tips, especially regarding firewalls, would be welcome. But please put things in real simple terms -- I am a beginner with RHEL WS 4.0.

    Cheers.

    You may like to look at JAP (do a google search for it) although it may not totally meet your specifications.

    Need any more help? Ask!

    It's a little unclear what you are looking for, but you probably want to look at Tor ( http://tor.eff.org/ ). You can read about how it works on the website. If you wish to set up a server without revealing your IP address you can run a Tor hidden service (also on the website).

    If in addition to routing all traffic through Tor, you set up a firewall with rules to filter all incoming connections, and to ignore ICMP ping requests, I would say that would make you pretty "invisible".

    On a side note... if you want to support the Tor project you can consider running a Tor server to relay connections.

    Hope that helps.
