Changing IP address
« on: January 07, 2012, 02:11:58 AM »
Is it possible to change your IP address somehow, using the Bat?
I know you can use some internet sites to do this, however the ones I tried would not let me access my web-based e-mail (Google/Yahoo etc.).

Hence I wondered whether it was possible to do with The Bat.

TIA

No, as your IP address is supplied by your ISP when you connect to the internet. You can use shielding / anonymising web services for some online activities, but I can't imagine that The Bat! would ever need this functionality to be honest. It'd be a browser function rather than an email one.
Cheers!
Anne

Thanks very much Anne!
