Default newbie question - Hiding/concealing ip address

Hello

There is a forums in which i'm quite frequent. Until now i was sure i'm totaly anonymus, but I found out that the forums manager can track all messeges sent from my ip (i.e - if i posted a msg as guest, and not as my regular user, he can tell that it was sent from my ip). Is there any way to prevent it?
Thank You!

um well i'm not sure. i know with zone alarm you hide ur ip address when possible. idk if this time is possible or not but eather way.... um...when u send a message from your pc your ip has 2 be recived really...but u can prevent it from being a bad thing. thats mostly what a firewall is for.

Use a proxy, it's really the only way.

By the way, zone alarm doesn't hide your ip. It only does so when connecting to the ZONE ALARM server.
