Wierd Q: How do I trick OSX to think I'm in the states?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
Hey all, well I'm in Japan, and I need to access websites that for some silly reason don't except non-U.S. IP's. Something about the Chinese was brought up, but I'll be honest, I don't think I have any dealings with them being in the military and all. So, Apps, and or devices to install directly to the connection would be most appreciated. Thanks!

    If it's filtering you out based on your IP, then there's nothing OSX can do about it.

    What you can do though, is find a way for all your internet requests to be routed through a US based "IP annonymizer". I don't even know if that is available, but it is certainly possible from a tech standpoint.

    Tekzilla (I think) did a podcast on an annonymizer which routed your computer's IP around the world. Google, for example, would the Russian version and upon refresh another country's. There was considerable lag, as I recall.

    I've used Tor before. It slows down ur web surfing, but does exactly what the people above have suggested.
