    To Surf- Proxy Help

    Im not sure Ive ever asked his before but I cant find a similar link by myself.

    My situation- I live in Bulgaria and I want to be able to watch stuff on the BBC website (only available to British viewers and I am a licence fee payer) and from the NBC/Fox websites

    What I know- Nothing. I have FoxyProxy on my computer and have heard the Tor software mentioned but I dont have the first clue how to start.

    I need a simple step by step walkthrough with the simplist possible solution so my wife needs to watch Eastenders.

    I actually cant find an easy way. Im guessing I need a UK and US proxy options. Hopefully someone can help me.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits

    Tor's too complicated.. been a while so I can't remember how to use it. Some part of it isn't free either I think.

    Try to get a software called anonymizer.

    Does that allow me to choose a different proxy from a different country?

    Nope but it will block traffic analysis automatically.
    I have used it successfully on hulu.com. Although this was a while ago and probably an older version, it caused my browser to freeze after sometime but the site never recognized me as outside the US, so you can give it a try.

    Done it before in order to watch ECB.tv broadcasts whilst claiming to be from Brazil.

    Haven't the first clue how to do it without the walkthrough mind, involves acquiring the right proxy number for the country you want and entering it into a bit of Tools/Internet Options/Connections/LAN Settings.

    Should point out that it stopped the rest of my internet working until i removed the proxy i'd inserted.

    Well that was easy....

    Put the IP in the bottom box of the two in LAN Settings, put port in the port.

    As i said, it's been awhile, i might have unintentionally missed something out.

    hmm, thanks but I cant get it to work. Need passwords etc.

    I wondered if there were open source or freeware bits of software to help just switch between a different proxy for a different country.
