Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

Hi Garrett

Does Junkbusters also allow a user to mask the remote IP &
other parts of the client's input to the HTTP handshake?

(mmmm MPS & TPS... - no more junk (postal) mail or calls.)

Please respond to thelist at lists.evolt.org

This one looks like someone using a proxy of some kind. Banner/cookie
blocking proxies will allow you to change the referrer passed to the
site you're visiting quite easily.

Other proxy software will probably have a similar config switch, but
Junkbuster is the only one I have experience with.
