Change IP Address For Mac, Ipad, And Iphone - What's The Difference?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Both the Mac computer and iPhones can have their IP address changed. There's more than one advantage to gain from changing your IP - You can access Netflix and Hulu outside The USA or BBC iPlayer outside The UK. You can watch streaming sports from other countries, unblock Facebook in The Middle East and Asia, or secure your chats in public wifi zones.

If we're talking open proxies, the Safari already has a manual proxy setting built into it. You can find an open proxy list by searching in Google. You should be aware that using an open proxy from an untrusted source poses certain risks to your private data. Assigning someone to over see your online activity should be done carefully. If you find a proxy source your can trust and have the IP address as well as port number, you can use these in the open proxy settings of your Safari browser. Here are your instructions. To change IP address for Mac, iPad, and iPhone with open proxies, this part will be the same as long as you're using Safari

  • 1. Open your Safari browser and click on little gear icon at right top corner of your screen, then click on PREFERENCES
  • 2. In the PREFERENCES window click on ADVANCED, then PROXIES, and then CHANGE SETTINGS
  • 3. Another window will appear on your screen called INTERNET PROPERTIES, and click on LAN SETTINGS
  • 4. Type in the IP address and port number in the appropriate areas

There are also apps that you can use to change the IP of your iPhone or iPad with proxies including ProxyPal and ProxyLord.

Now if we're talking VPNs, there's a couple choices you have. Out of the box, an iPhone/iPad can use Cisco IPSec, L2TP/IPSec, and PPTP. Most VPN services out there are going to have L2TP/IPSec and PPTP VPN available for iOS systems. To get a Cisco VPN you'll have to go to the official Cisco site. You also have the ability to get something from the Apple Store (SSL VPN is also available).

Mac is similar, but you've also go the option to get OpenVPN. This is going to be more heavily encrypted and provide better security and anonymity. I have more experience with dealing with VPN services themselves rather than with Apple and Cisco, so I would recommend going to OpenVPN from a VPN service rather than getting something from the Apple store, but this preference comes from habit, and I'm that Apple developed great VPN technology for their computers and phones.

So, in a nutshell, I would say that the only difference between changing IP address for Mac and iOS systems is the OpenVPN software which can be installed on Mac, but not on iOS. However, there are also SSL VPNs available from Juniper and Cisco for iPhone, which is comparable to OpenVPN (OpenVPN is usually combined with SSL encryption for OpenVPN/SSL ).
