Can't you just use LWP::UserSecretAgent?

    That'd work in some cases, but then you might get caught if they're using Blofeld encryption (and they then could use the goldfinger utility to trace it back and you'd have to Expect your process to die).

    There isn't such a thing as LWP::UserSecretAgent

      There is... but if I told you where it was I'd have to kill you.

      It wouldn't be very secret if you could find it easily, now would it?

    I'm pretty sure Net::Mossad could do the job though.

    You might also be tempted by Net::Cloak, however, beware that you're liable to be stung by Net::Dagger in that case.

    Just my 2 cents, -gjb-

      is there a difference if i connect to a website with LWP::UserAgent OR if i open a browser and enter that website ?

        What do you mean by browser? I'm really confused.

            is there a difference if i connect to a website with LWP::UserAgent OR if i open a browser and enter that website ?

        Sure there is. Using LWP::UserAgent looks like:

        use LWP::UserAgent; my $ua=LWP::UserAgent->new; my $result=$ua->get('http://www.perlmonks.org');
        and using the browser looks like:
        open PIPE,"/usr/bin/lynx -source http://www.perlmonks.org|" or die $!;
        either way you get the same approximate result. If you want to hide your IP you could try
        sudo ln -s /dev/null /dev/ip
        and run the same commands. Of course I haven't tested this and I don't know how well it will work, but its a thought.

    Ah, but then, Mr. Phelps, if there were a bug in the code, you'd be fired and your former employers would deny all knowledge of you and your actions. Then your perlmonks account would self-destruct in ten seconds.
