Hi everyone.  I  am trying to configure Netscape v6.2 to work with a program called Complete Anonymous Web Surfing.  Thos program has various proxy addresses/port options that can be used.  I am running Windows XP home and use a Linksys router (LNETX100) and a Linksys ethernet adapter.  I am trying to learn how to configure my TCP/IP and/or Netscape to allow connections in stealth mode.  When I attempt to enter a proxy address/port setting manually in Netscape using SOCKS5 it will not allow me to connect.  Can anyone help with setting this up properly?

You can potentially set up your linksys router to point to your computer as the DMZ machine, but it is seriously unadvised due to hacker concerns.  You may have to set up specific ports (related to the anonymity service) to come through the linksys router to your computer.  All of these configurations can be set by logging into your router (usually http://192.168.1.1) and getting into the advanced configuration.  You will need to know what IP address your computer is getting, which can be found by running "ipconfig" from a command line.

Yes, I am familiar with  the option you suggest and have already rejected it for the same reasons you have brought forth.  I HAVE figured out partial anonymity but have NOT figured out anonymity to the level where my OS and browser cannot be seen on the internet. That is what I need to find out to be completely anonymous at times of necessity.

I believe the only way you can get complete anonymity from your personal computer's OS and browser info is to actually use a different computer on the web to do your browsing, or potentially you can use a specially-designed browser that blocks HTTP-REQUEST environment variable information.  You also would have to turn off Java and JavaScript, ActiveX and probably Flash too.  Maybe even DHTML.  In essence, you couldn't truly view most websites.  To me, anonymity means no personal information or location indicators (IP addy, traceback, ISP info, etc.), and knowing my OS or browser shouldn't give them a clue as to who I really am.
