I've always been a Linux fan but I find it so surprising that unlike Windows, it doesn't have software like Real Hide My IP which is a software that allows you to select a country, change your IP and more. In the back of my mind, I know there has to be SOMETHING OUT THERE, that isn't "browser based." Anything from a browser like Tor is weak and useless. You can still be traced. It isn't that I want to use these tools, I just want to learn anything and everything and I like testing things out.

    A quick glance at RHIP's site leaves me with the distinct impression that it's a scaremongering bullshit to tempt easily frightened idiots into spending money. Especially since at least two of their claims are not how the internet works. – Shadur Oct 27 '14 at 6:32
  • That's true. Both points are accurate. I was curious. That's actually pretty interesting. – Mike Wentworth Oct 27 '14 at 6:39

    TOR is useless? can you still be traced? could you please elaborate that affirmation? – YoMismo Oct 27 '14 at 7:31

    -1 for "tor is useless." Tor is exactly what you're looking for. – HalosGhost Oct 27 '14 at 12:53

As far as I am concerned, I find tor extremely simple to configure for simple proxying or VPN use.

Linux is not Windows. There is such software*, but don't expect it to come in your usual exe format, ready to be clicked and launched. However, many Linux distributions will provide a torsocks package, which allows you to proxy any application through the ToR network, as long as it is using a TCP-based protocol (HTTP, POP3, IMAP, ...).

* Edit: actually no, there is no such thing as Real Hide my IP. But there is software which does what your looking for. I couldn't seriously compare ToR and this "thing". However, I do understand why this is available on Windows, and Windows only. If you believe that Real Hide my IP provides better service than the ToR network, then you definitely don't understand what you're looking for.

On my Ubuntu system, I was able to install all of this in a single apt-get call.

$ sudo apt-get install tor torsocks

Now, once you've made sure that the tor daemon is running (service tor status), you're ready to use torsocks to proxify your browser, your mail client, and so on:

$ torsocks chromium-browser
$ torsocks thunderbird
...

After a quick search, I was able to find the torsocks package for Fedora, Debian and Arch Linux. There's even a FreeBSD port for it! Linux could hardly make things easier.

Untraceable ? There is no such a thing, but you can delay the time.

First you should check VPN stuff, For me I'd suggest openVPN, it is quite common nowadays.
