jepri is right: you need an http proxy placed in another machine that navigate for you the target address (in this way the remote server knows only the ip of the proxy machine).

Good point to start are 2 http proxies made in Perl: wsproxy: Perl Web Proxy and mine http wrapper

    and what about anonymizer.com?

    for example:
    http://anon.free.anonymizer.com/http://www.perlclub.tk

    yes it has a principle of proxy but it can be done without
    a proxy server imho (cgi script != deamon)

      A proxy is "A technique used to cache information on a Web server and acts as an intermediary between a Web client and that Web server".

      My http wrapper is a CGI (not a daemon) that "acts as an intermediary between a Web client and that Web server" using LWP.

      In this way my (remote, for the client) CGI navigate for you (the client) the target URL, hiding (for the server that hosts the target URL) the ip of the client (like anonymizer).
