Hello Experts,

How can I hide my IP address while connecting to another machine using remote desktop or VNC ?

I mean i dont want the destination machine know my real IP that connected to it.

I have tried some FakeIP software but its not working. The VNC server in the destination machine that I connected can still show my view IP address.

thanks,
Paul

In reality, you would not be able "hide" your IP. Of cause your LAN IP would be unknown to destination, but not Public=your ISP IP will be always "visible"
The reason that you cannot "hide it", that you always need let other party know, where and how to send information back to you.
Not sure why would you bother with those kind of stuff, you might want to rephrase or clarify  
goal you trying to achieve.

as rtantra said, you would have to proxy your traffic through a service. Then they will just see the IP that the proxy uses.

If you think about it, you are getting data from the RDP server. It has to send back the data to you, so it must know the IP address to return the data too. So the only way to get around this is to use a proxy service which will sit in the middle and relay the traffic. You will need to proxy all of your traffic, not just web traffic.

WatchGuard Case Study: Museum of Flight

“With limited money and limited staffing, we didn’t have a lot of choices in terms of what we could do to bring efficiency. WatchGuard played a central part in changing that.” To provide strong, secure Wi-Fi access within the museum, Hunter chose to deploy WatchGuard’s AP120 APs.

What I want to do is just dont want others know my actual Geographical location by checking the IP address.

Can anyone teach me how to config a proxy service to connect to VNC or remote desktop?

E.g. a proxy service from australia to show an australia IP address after connect to the remote computer

Hi,

Installing above mentioned tools will automatically set proxy.No need to configure anything.Just install them and you are ready to go.That's it.
