In running by website (actually a bunch of blogs strung together) I use Nucleus CMS. It has a great plugin for preventing spam comments etc. Now the only drawback is that when you post yourself it takes forever as it checks to see if you are a miscreant.

The way round that is to have a static IP which you register with it as "safe". Cool and we are running fast again and keeping out spam.

However, once we go mobile and I want to post or change stuff there is no static IP for my laptop right? And the concrpt does not apply with mobile broadband? How confused am I here? Certainly posting via mobile broadband on my laptop when on the road takes forever as it used to on my desktop prior to my regfistering the static Ip.

Any education here greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Brent

No static ip addresses available on the CDMA data network sorry.
You could set up a proxy... or remote desktop or whatever...?

Like most dialup connections your mobile broadband will have a dynamic IP address, likely to be different each time you connect.

Yes - I suspected that but wasn't 100% sure. I shall delve into how to set up a proxy or similar - yet more new territory!!! Learning all the time I guess... but thanks for confirming that.

If you're into linux or your company has linux servers, SSH can be used as a proxy (its also encrypted, as well as Apache web server. If you want a specialised proxy program then Squid is the way to go.

If you're not into linux (likely), ISA works as a proxy if you have Windows Server. Apache and SSH work on windows too, but i wouldnt go that route.

Ok... thanks for that. Shall have a look at squid. This problem would be no different I take it with GSM based mobile networks?

An easy way which will probably work is an anonymous surfing proxy. One I have found is www.youhide.com
You can find many more at google by looking for anonymous cgi proxy.

basically my theory on this answer is that if you use one of these cgi proxy's to post or edit with, and it has its own static ip address which is usually the case if its based in the USA then you could add it to your safe list.
Would be a hell of alot easier than setting up your own true proxy server somewhere if you are not all that clued up on it.

If you do wish to set up your own true proxy, and dont know much about linux, you can use a vpn connection into your home / company windows computer which I am guessing has a static ip, and proxy software from www.analogx.com under their 'network' software category which has a free simple proxy program. Your http traffic would then be routed via your home computer and out it's static ip address.
Free vpn software is avaliable if you use windows xp home or it should be built into xp pro. Dont know about 2000 or vista, guess its the same. This would turn your standard computer into a proxy server.

Also I ask, can you add a range of ip's. It shouldnt be too hard to find out the range of ip addresses used by the mobile operator, like most other isp's. A quick google search would probably give you the results if you can add ips between x and y.

Good advice thanks - both solutions sound plausible for me - given that I am not deeply knowledgable in this area... and I didn't head into it to get further into it!! I shall have a look at the simplest one first then see what can be done.

Thanks - and to all others who contributed. I'm sure there will be others who could use the benefits of a "fake" static IP on their mobile set up
