According to your question:
 
How to set up your proxy IP address.
 
This is essentially getting to be invisible (to some level) on the internet and to enable you to visit websites that may have been blacklisted by a firewall or something at an institution such as a school, or even an office at that.
 
There are various methods that you can employ to conceal your IP address from each of the web servers you are logged into, one of the most common methods is by the use of a proxy server. At the very basic a proxy server acts as the link between you and the internet and is usually a computer. What happens is that every page requested by you from the internet goes through the proxy server.
 
The proxy server then deletes your IP address from the page requests and substitutes it with one generated from it (the proxy server). This is mainly done through software. Web based proxy servers are preferred by most people due to their anonymity with some claiming that they are the most anonymous.
 
There is one disadvantage with using proxy servers and this lies in the fact that the browsing speed may be reduced to some level, this is because you shall be using a specific IP address of your choice.
 
To illustrate this consider your place of residence, the IP you shall be used, the physical distance from the server and the actual number of people using the server. Generally the greater these parameters are, the more your browsing speeds shall be negatively affected. This is a tutorial that might help
 
Downloading software that hides your IP may also help. Proxy websites I have used before include:
 
 
All the best in getting invisible on the web.
