I recently received an cease and desist letter based on my I P showing up in the peers listing. As a result I've been researching ways to change or hide my I P. There is a lot out there to wade through. Proxies, paid VPN, and seedboxes. Lots of opinions, advice, and warnings. Some web sites I found very helpfull were:
And this one that shows exactly where your I P is located.
I've found a wide range of prices from cheap to expensive and a wide ranges of services to go with those prices. I've also found that each provider treats P2P just a little differently. I've read lots of TOS's to find one that would suite me.

You need a VPN, of course.
I can't vouch for any of the VPN services, marky. But Relakks ( hXXp://www.relakks.com/ ) is cheap at just € 45,00 for 12 months. Relakks is located in Sweden, so it will not give you access to Hulu videos (should you happen to be outside the USA). But it will do a fine job of hiding your IP address and encrypting your torrent traffic.
Another one to look at is Happy VPN ( hXXp://www.happy-vpn.com/ ). Happy VPN is unique in that it can be configured to give you access to both USA-only video sites (like Hulu) and UK-only sites (like the BBC).
