Proxies & redirects..
Q. If I go to a website, they can see my IP Address? is this correct. If so how do I hide this so that they do not see my IP address?
Scenario is that I am going to be using a company that will manually go to my client's page and fill in the user data. Doing this will mean that their IP address might be recorded and if too many leads come from one IP address, the client may think they are fake or whatever..
Any solutions will be appreciated

If you're concerned that they will look at their access logs (as if they don't have better things to do) and see many visits from one location then just tell them ahead of time that you're having someone do all this work for you. Because it's not like you need to hide the fact that you're doing this, right?

cheers, but they could also record the ip address from within the webpage, and store it in the database, using one of the functions..
And ideally, we wouldt want them to know this but its not illegal or anything.

See, when I hear "it's not illegal or anything but I don't want them to know what I'm doing"... you see what I'm getting at? It doesn't sound good.
Unless you're putting some sort of strain on their system, or if they're some very tiny site and like to see how their baby is doing, I can pretty much guarantee you that they won't care how many IP addresses you come from as long as you don't try to do anything bad.
But I've said my piece. Proxies are indeed what you're looking for.

ok cheers. no we are not stealing their bandwidth, we are sending them data we collected through our partners and if we manually put this then they will see lots of data coming from ONE IP address. it will be coming from one IP address.

If they are your client, why can't you just bypass the web front end and directly insert the data into their DB? Or send the data to them in a text file format and they can insert it themselves. Something doesn't sound right...
