    Post How can i make windows look like unix?

    How can i make a windows broswer appear to a server as though the user is using a *nix based machine?

    If I understand your question correctly, one of the ways to make a server see your browser like it is coming from a Unix machine is to use a proxy server that resides on a Unix machine.

    However, if your question is about how you trick a server in thinking your OS is a Unix machine when you are actually running Windows is beyond me. The best answer I can crop up is use Unix.

    If this did not answer your question, please reiterate.

    You can make Opera, tell the server what browser you are using:
    Internet Explorer 5.0
    Mozilla 5.0 - 4.78 - 3.0
    Opera

    But just doing that, won't help you completely. If I am correct, the headers also reports which OS you are using.

    actually wouldn't you be using lynx to surf, not links...although links would technically let you surf, but you need a browser first...

    Links is another text based browser.

    EDIT:
    What about Cygwin and XFree86. I know that Cygwin allows you to run posix programs on windows.

    Please note, that I could be wrong, and I have never used Cygwin myself.

    Jeez. Some people... IMO the point of Zeb was to quiz people on what they knew, rather than giving them narrow goals to learn about and then move on.
