Hi first of all sorry if i posted this thread in the wrong location, didn't know where to put it.

So im wondering about proxy servers, see it is like this: I got banned from a samp server and i can't get my ip changed (it's not the local adress it's the one all the computers in my house shares) I searched a little bit and discovered that a proxy server would be the best option. If I have it in some one elses house I will get another ip rigth? Is it possible to install some software on my laptop and just use that? and how do I do that?

Btw i found this: https://help.ubuntu.com/9.04/serverguide/C/squid.html

But I didn't understand so much of it. Thx for all answers

Hi, TOR will change your IP address on the internet. Take a look at:

Don't use Tor for entertainment purposes, and especially not for torrents. Read this:

I don't need it for anything else than playing samp so is it possible to switch it on and off? but is there a better way to solve my ban problems? I have tried to post a ban appeal to the owner of the server but he said no so I don't think that will work :(

By the way I used Tor but I still had the same ip. I watched a video in their webpage about how to use it and I don't think I did anything wrong so It doesn't work for samp.:(
