    Urgent

    hello,
    i have an adsl connection with dynamic ip over a router and i want to upgrade to an xDSL connection with static IP. the problem is, that i use eMule a lot, and i've heard that it is extremely esay to find out a users identity if a static id is used. is that true? is it safer to use dynamic id's?
    please help me out!
    greetings, blumentopferde

    If you are worried about your IP address being tracked, connect via an anonymous proxy.

    note: If you use a public proxy its going to slow you down greatly.

    how do you do that and are there any good torrent programs that work well over a proxy?

    ISP's usually have logs of who dynamic ip's have been allocted to so there is no difference in risk between static and dynamic.

    ...but they will still find you if they really want to, so just dont bother with the proxy as you will be so slow,....all that extra time you will be needing to download you files, will surely be used by the RIAA to seek you out, like a rat in a hole ... and whats the point then in upgrading...so you can download more slowly?

    You could of course try the opennap experience, where file-sharing server owners, like myself, respect and protect your anonymity.
