Hey all,

All players will never get be hacked, so I will share this guide how to hide your IP on the Lobby: You last logged in earlier today from: *Here u IP*

You must be a ADMINISTRATOR of the COMPUTER! This guide is ONLY for Windows 7! Do not change other things in the file that you edit or your computer will crash!! This is at own risk!

Step 1: Go to [url="http://www.whatismyip.com/"]this[/url] website and copy the IP.
Step 2: Go to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc
Step 3: Copy the file HOSTS to the desktop. Open it in a file like Notepad.
Step 4: You will get now something like this:

# Copyright © 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost

Step 5: Add after the last line (after one enter) your IP adres, then one space and the text you want. DO NOT USE SPACES!
Step 6: Save it with the name HOSTS1.txt; rename the old HOSTS to HOSTS2 and rename HOSTS1.TXT to HOSTS and place it back to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc.
Step 7: Login on RuneScape and you have this when you come in the lobby.

Have fun on RuneScape.

This is a nice addition, something which I also use, but there is a problem.

The System32 file is a local file stored on your computer, therefore you will only see that when you log in on YOUR computer. If a remote computer logs in, it obviously can't read your System32 file, therefore they still get your IP.

What windows do you use? Maybe can you send your HOSTS file to me in a private message, then can I look for you.

It'll probably be in the same map. All windows operating systems have a map called system32.


You will still connect by use of an ip. Connection between computers and servers require an ip for packages of bits to be sent.
As Rhodes said: it's only local and will only appear like this to you, so it's rather pointless.

It works, when someone logged in the will not see MY IP. :)

Still, I don't get it...
It's the ip you see when that person is already logged in on your account. How is it in any way necessary to prevent that from happening? :s
My point is: he is on your account... He has already logged in to it...

No it doesn't work, it's local, that's what I've been trying to say.

It only works on your computer, because your computer reads your System32 file, and substitutes your phrase with your IP.

If a hacker gets onto your account, he WILL see your IP because HIS System32 file doesn't tell his computer to substitute the IP with your phrase. I've tested this with my laptop and desktop.

And what CapuDie says is also correct, just because someone doesn't have your IP, it won't stop them hacking you, an IP is dynamic, it can be easily changed.

I have Windows XP. But I have no reason to hide my IP, so I don't need to use this. :P
Interesting to know it can be done, though.
