If your ISP doesn't like port scanning with tools such as nmap will VPN make you anonymous and undetected in that aspect?

My second question: can you patch the TCP connection limit above 251 for Windows 7 64bit?

Nothing makes you anonymous on the Internet.  At best you can add layers to your location.

I know that already. But I wanted to ask will VPN make me anonymous for the ISP not for NSA or FBI.

I don't scan dangerous ranges, jeez.

What abou the connection limit? I remember that WinXP had 1000 or so.

Is there a way to patch this over 251 or do I need to install a VM with WinXP and make it connect on the Internet?
