How to fool a program into thinking I'm online from America?
« on: October 17, 2009, 09:27:22 AM »
Hi,

I'm currently in a foreign country, and I am trying to run an ad-supported program that is said to only work in America and the UK.  When I attempt to run the program, it says it's not available in my country.

Is there a way I can use a proxy server from America or UK to fool the program into thinking I am online there, allowing me to run it?

 I am completely new to proxy servers and I don't know what I'm doing... I've downloaded a program called "Tor" as it was recommended to me, but still don't know what I should do with it.  Or perhaps there is an easier way?

I'd appreciate any help.
Thank you

Terry

You need Socks Proxy, not Http proxy.

Hi Terry,
Thanks for the help.  I followed the steps in order to try and run my program, but it didn't work.

I researched some U.S. SOCKS proxies that were linked to from this site, then I tested it with Socks Proxy Checker.  It had the green check mark appear, so I opened up Sockscap, opned the settings, entered in the SOCKS proxi.. then closed and reopened Sockscap.  Then I tried to run my program but it still gave me the message "This ad-supported program is unavailable in your country"
I am not sure what I am doing wrong.  Any ideas?
I appreciate the help.

Did you run the ad-supported program from Sockscap?

After adding to Sockscap, please double click the icon in Sockscap to run the program. Now the program are using the socks proxy (which is set in Sockscap in step 2) to connect to the server.

Yes I forgot to mention that detail- I did.  Furthermore, each SOCKS server is listed as being in the U.S.

IT seems I have a new message: now it's telling me that an internet is required to use the program.  I am guessing it attempts to connect to the proxi, but times out because it goes slow.  So can I ask if you know of any  US socks proxi servers with decent speeds?
Thanks
