Hi there, 
 
I've got an odd question but hoping someone can help. I need a VPN or proxy that looks like you're browsing from a normal home broadband connection. Does anyone offer this?! e.g. an IP lookup would look like you're accessing it from home rather than routing it through a VPN or Proxy service. Does anyone offer this?!
 
Thanks

It's in order to play poker when I'm not in the UK. However, many of the poker websites have become very wary of anyone using a vpn service. So ideally I'm looking for something that looks completely normal. Setting up a computer in my flat then using Remote Desktop to access that is the only way I can think of right now. But it doesn't seem quite reliable enough so I was curious whether any company offered it?

Now that I know what the purpose is...
 
First option:
Set up your own VPN server or use remote control software, search Google/DuckDuckGo/Bing for more info.
 
Second option:
To have an IP that's not associated with a VPN you should take a VPN provider that gives you a dedicated (static) IP instead of a shared (dynamic) one. It's the most expensive option and not all VPN providers offer it. Dedicated (static) VPN's are mainly for business and corporate use.
 
Third option:
You could try VPN Gate. Most small "VPN Gate Providers" are home-connections and you can use OpenVPN.
It's free but the speed (lack of) could be a problem...

Please ask Google why some of my links don't work anymore !

Also, using proxy startpage.com also called Ixquick has an advanced search option.  It allows you to point to a site, and say find your user name all in proxy.  So you can jump to their servers, and to your content. 

 

It’s really clean for the most part; the issue you have is VPN & Proxy block a lot of Java, and Flash content.  They also jack up the order of the CSS sheets in the webpages heading code.  But, I have had luck using some flash with it. 

 

Maybe it will work for you too?

 

Hope it helps
