FireFox has a couple of interesting add-ons. ProxySel allows you select from a
whole collection of proxies around the world. The caveat is that these free
proxies are only active for a short period of time; some days they work, some
days they don’t.

Another Firefox add-on is Modify Headers. I haven’t played with this one much,
but it’s possible to muss with the headers that get sent with an HTTP
request. Once you know the address you want to spoof, you should be able to
plug this into Modify Headers and test your IP detection function.

I would subscribe cheap shell account from those places and tunnel the traffic thru those servers to the site under testing. In best case you get even the proxy access which simplifies the task a lot.

HTTP heder modification is not enough to test the site. E.g. Apache’s deny/allow -options are not trusting to the headers. They are totally trusting to the source of the TCP/IP-packet bacause in that case the faking is much harder than any other way.

You can use free proxy server.

Try this out: . After navigating to this page; Enter website URL in field “Enter The Website You Wish To Anonymously Browse:”.

I hope this helps.
