Default Is AOL spilling your real IP to ebay?

There was a thread and I can't find it now; people said that AOL was spilling their real IP to ebay and not giving them an AOL IP.

Okay for people using say cable and then going to ebay, connect to AOL and then visit here:

What are my HTTP headers?

Tell me if your real IP is being spilled in the headers.

I just did a test run. I am on broadband. I got different IP address when using aol browser, than my ie is displaying. Thats a great secret way to change IP.

AOL uses proxies. Your IP address should be different every time you connect and unable to trace. EBay doesn't like this much.

Modee I think most of us use connect to aol through your own isp.
I have mine selected to connect to aol through airport. Then I open firefox and use that to do everything once aol is connected.

Do you mean you, "Sign In" to AOL via your non-AOL internet service provider? That wont change your IP address then.

LOL your funny. I think the first thing anyone does when trying to get a new ip is check it after doing whatever to make sure its changed.


Have you set up your aol client before? Mine specifically asks do you wish to connect to aol through your existing internet connection. AOL provides their services even to those who use a different isp. It's their way of still being in business considering the amounts of people who drop aol as an isp.

AOL is just a proxy, sure you are connected to your isp and have an ip address, but when you browse connected to aol you have a different ip address.

Once you have aol connected (existing internet connection, not dialup) then open firefox and go to whatever site you want and you'll be using aol's proxy servers.

AOL for broadband is a very popular method for those who want to disguise our ip's. People have been doing it for years.

Georgie, just a heads-up. eBay knows your real IP even if you connect through AOL, at least when using cable.
