    Tricking the "refering URL" when you visit a website

    Certain web sites give you an error when you try to access certain pages from a page other than where they want you to be coming from. Is there any way to trick the server into thinking you are coming from wherever you want them to think?

    Very possible. I would recommend looking at The Proxomitron, it lets you do a lot of things, like filtering and modifying HTML on the fly before it gets to your browser (to cut out ads, etc.) and modifying incoming/outgoing HTTP headers, such as the header which specifies the referrer-address. Basically it's a proxy that runs on the same computer as your browser, although it COULD be used on a different computer... I would recommend using some firewall software with it so that other people don't use your computer for anonymous browsing

    Wow, that program looks great, I can't wait to test it out this weekend. I can't do it now for I am at school and supressed.
