I need to look like I'm in Brazil

Hi, I live in the USA, and I have Wildblue Satellite.

I play an online game called "Pangya" owned by SGI. On Dec 8th, SGI separated the Brazilian server from the US server. I have many Brazilian friends whom I play with and chat with. I even belong to a BR guild. Since Dec 8th, I have been blocked from the BR server. All Brazilians have been blocked from the US server. It's like the Berlin Wall!

I need to change my IP from USA to Brazil. It has to be Brazil. I tried using a Brazil Proxy IP ( port 80), and websites like checkmyip.com confirm that I am in Brazil, but the Pangya servers still send me to the US side of the Wall. I think it's because  cmd > ipconfirm  still reads Wildblue US.

I heard that one Brazilian player used something called a vpn (a program called Hotspot -?) to go to the US server, so I know it can be done. I hope I can do the same thing with Wildblue, only I want to go to the BR server, but I don't know how.

Please help me, the Brazilians are my friends. I love them and they love me.

Your friend is on the right track. Google for VPN provider that can provide Brazilian IPs. E.g.:


Buy any Brazil-based VPN service, follow the instructions to establish the VPN connection and then you should appear as a user from Brazil.

Thank you for your advice. I now subscribe to OverPlay.net.

It worked! The game sends me to the Brazil server.

I am very happy and struggling to learn portugues!
