How can I hide my IP to access American website?

Found 3rd Jan 2009
Hi guys, need some help again.

We want to access the American Abercrombie and Fitch website however cannot get beyond the UK site. Without going through a paid for proxy, is there any way I can do this?

Big rep for help, it will save my dad the agony of having to go into A&F when he's in Vegas in a few weeks



A while ago I used to use the proxy TOR and that was free.

Hmm, seems to have worked, but only just, unable to view the scrolling menus or even prices... Need to play with it I think!

Many thanks

Ah ha! Found one "privacy5" works fine - Actually, not entirely, but I'll get there.

Thanks again! Rep for you

just had a look for you works

I was going to get a jumper on there yesterday £40 + £20 for postage. Spoke to my mate who's living out there he had a look on the site not only was it $40 originally, but it's down in a sale to $20. I understand why their prices are cheaper but why do we not get sale price either? I've ended up asking him to order me one and ship it to me, costs less than the price of the original jumper.

Was wondering about that... >.

i used software called ]Hide My IP, free for 14 days and saves pfaffing around with these proxy sites.

in IE goto tools - internet options - conections tab - Lan Settings button
use Address: Port: 3124

I still wouldn't risk my card details on it.

I don't intend to either... But at least I can access it and check it out Will work out my wish list and father can order it while he is over there lol.

Hotspot shield is a safe VPN intended to make it safe for you to send personal information etc. online when connected via a wifi hotspot you don't trust. i've used it before to watch something on hulu but it was too slow for streaming video really. but so I did get an IP that appeared american. And is trustworthy vs a random proxy that are normally set up by hackers exploiting unsecured business servers.
