Hide IP Address and other relative Info

Postby usamahashimi » Mon Oct 27, 2008 1:49 pm

Hello
I am on a Windows network (connected by router). My PC has kubuntu 8.04, whenever I try to download something, my PC disconnects from internet after some time. I think that the Admins blocks my IP Address because when I change my IP manually, I get online again. How can I hide my IP Address (and other relative information) from Admins so that they can not restrict me from downloading?
Or what can be other reason for this problem?
Thanks

what do you mean by "disconnected"? what happens, exactly? does the same problem occur when you download with windows? how exactly are you connected to the internet through their network? do they have proxies? do you have to authenticate to the proxies before downloading? what kind of proxies are they?
Watch out for the Manners Taliban!
Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

Dear lambda!
what do you mean by "disconnected"?

I mean that the internet browser (internet browser, konqueror) gives the message that page could not found and at the bottom gives some ISASERVER message. And in Internet Browser, I have to put ISASERVER in IP fields.
does the same problem occur when you download with windows?

Yes the same problem happens when I download from windows.
how exactly are you connected to the internet through their network?

The whole network is connected through router.
do they have proxies?

Yes, I have to use proxy in browser settings.
do you have to authenticate to the proxies before downloading?

What does that mean?
what kind of proxies are they?

The browser proxy is like 172.17.x.x
Thanks
