Internal IP Address & General Internet Security
    #3954768 - 03/22/05 06:54 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

According to Auditmypc.com, a person's internal IP address could be visable to outsiders. (http://www.auditmypc.com/internal-ip.html ) Is there a way around this? That website links to patch-management.com, but I couldn't find any real solutions to the problem there.

Another question; I currently use Firefox with SwitchProxy to vist websites which I'd rather not broadcast my information to. Is there still something which could give away too much info, other than mundane things like operating system or internet browser? Is there more that I should do?


(I am, of course, firewalled)


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.
