We need to access a site from a block of ip's heres an example.

User goes to our site, when they go to our site they have their home ip address they login and then click on a link that link needs to generate a request that looks like it's comming from our server. our server send a request to the destination site with our server ip and then passes the user on. We can't setup a proxy so looking for other solutions.

Hello ucfperson,

You are talking about a proxy. What stops them from directly accessing the remote site?

Regards,

We want to do it without a proxy.  The ip address cannot be that of the clint but that of the server.

That's what a proxy does. Hiding the client IP from the distant server.

You can do it with a NAT capable firewall also.

Are you intending to develop a server for this?
