Need to pass through net traffic from another location
Posted on 2006-05-01
Fairly sure this is the right section, but not positive. Basically what I want to do is route all my internet activities though a friend's net connection, in another location. I want all the sites I visit to only see my friend's IP.
I've seen a solution to this, but it was a long time ago and I don't know exactly how they did it. The solution I saw had a headless PC with NetBSD installed...the local router then had a port forwarded to it.
I'm not married to the idea of using a vpn (apologies if I'm using the wrong term)...all I want to do is put a machine in my friend's house that allows my traffic to be redirected through it, giving his IP to any external websites. If there is some very simple solution, that would be great...the most important thing is to have as little lag as possible (I realize the extra bounce adds some, I just mean the best possible given how I want to connect).
I'd need to know how to set up my local machine's connection (PowerMac G5 connected to Linksys Router, which is connected to cablemodem), and the box in my friend's house, and the router in both places. I've searched on this, but haven't hit on the right search terms. Any help or links to instructions or similar problems would be greatly appreciated.
