So theoretically……if I wanted to listen or watch something but couldn’t because it was blocked in my country, how would I go about listening/watching it anyway, without doing something bad to my computer? Theoretically of course. :wink:

Your computer is assigned a unique number on the Internet by your service provider. Systems (generally) know where in the world all these numbers should be. So, you need to theoretically find a way to make your computer seem like it’s in a different place.

You could get on a plane or train, and take your computer somewhere else, or you could “trick” the world into believing your computer has moved when it has not.

What you’d theoretically be after is a proxy server that makes it look like your computer has moved. For example, if I wanted my computer to appear as though it was in Australia, I might visit this site http://teleport.to/Australia/
