    Hi,

    I have a question, basically the situation is this.

    I play an online game called OGAME, been playing for a year and recently have been banned for account sharing, this confused me as I havent to my knowledge been account sharing so I asked for evidence which came in the form of logon times giving two different cities (plymouth and Peterborough) within 30 minutes of one another at times, when I checked the times I realised that they would have been lunchtime at work (but I work in Plymouth).

    So my question is this - would it be possible to logon to the work network in plymouth but the game operators are seeing an ip address in Peterborough? I have no idea of how these things work, it seems unlikley but I can see no other reason for the data i have been shown.

    The Go doesnt think its possible but for my own sanity I want to know if it is.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's possible to spoof an IP address, or to use a proxy, but it would have to be an overt attempt on someone's part.

    It could be that your username / password is used by your colleagues.

    My Question is about scanning a remote IP and finding a router as usual........Well what do I need to do to see past the router weather I have access to the Router or not
