At work our IP address comes from Australia even though we are based in Auckland - because of this, we can't access tvnzondemand and various other NZ only websites.

Is there anyway (that is legal) I can view NZ only websites and content with my Aussie based IP address?

Cheers.

install a separate internet connection and use local NZ ISP.

The question of "legality" is interesting. Does the company allow streaming applications on their network?

Although most companies say "Internet resources" could only be used for work, we all know some applictions cause an excessive use. That's why some companies blocked Facebook and Trade Me for example.

Mind you, anything you do to access a site via a proxy will be slow - perhaps too slow to allow for video streaming for example.

One option is to install Hamachi Premium in two PCs and use its proxy features...

I'm working at a digital advertising agency so sometimes it would be helpful seeing tvnz on demand ads in action.

No biggie, i can see them at home, just wondering if there was a quick fix.

Cheers.

Then perhaps it is more wise to talk to your team leader and come up with a good case as to why you need a separate internet connection to do testing! That's how we have a separate connection to test our council websites from ADSL to get the exact feel as the public (when visiting our websites).

We have our ADSL connection connected to our PABX.

In that case, you could run a proxy on your home computer. Might not be worth the effort though.

Good idea - remote desktop software woudl probably do the trick, it might work quite well now with the fs upload.

A proxy is different from remote access - and remote access most of the times disable video for performance reasons.

Also the content you want is protected so it won't be available over remote desktop connections.

I wouldn't even bother with YouTube-quality video over Remote Desktop on 100Mbit LAN.

I assume here that you have a connection with a New Zealand ISP, but the geo information on your assigned IP's is saying that the IP is based in ozzie, is this the case?

Set yourself up with a SSH port forwarding.

Set up a SSH daemon (SSH server) to listen on your home connection if you have the internet/broadband at home.

If you are using Windows at work, use PuTTY to tunnel from your Work machine to home, and then out to the internet. Putty will set itself up as a SOCKS server on your local machine, listening on any port you want.

You tell your browser to connect to localhost. When your webbrowser views any pages, it will be from your home connection.

Its the #1 way to get past any firewall/proxy restrictions. Added bonus is you have sFTP access and remote control of your home machine via VNC or RDP or NX.

Yeah man it is handy eh. Some days I just have a fit and roll around on the floor because I found out something new I could do with SSH. The most recent one was having a GUI browsing folders on a remote machine like a widows file share, while using a terminal and proxy all over the one TCP port 22. I encourage anyone to set up a home SSH server with a big beefy passphrase. The functionality it provides to anyone away from their home box is indespensible.
