    Any ideas on how I would be able to set up a VPS/VPN or something that would allow me to use as many static IPs as I need?

    I need to be able to use a static IP (obviously different from my ISP's assigned IP) for about a week. After that week, I would like to be able to get rid of that IP and get a new static IP, same thing for the next week, etc. etc.

    Any way to do this, preferably as cheap as possible?

    Thanks!

    Hey LBJ,
    This is assuming you know how to handle an unmanaged vps, https://www.digitalocean.com/help/technical/setup/

    That would be a cheap solution, just as it says. They use static ips to change every week just create a snapshot right before you destroy the vps, create the new one, destroy the old one.

    Hi HudsonWebServices,
    This sounds like exactly what I wanted, thank you very much. I have no experience using a VPS, but I would guess it isn't too hard to learn, right? Anywhere you can point me to for a good tutorial?

    If you go to their website, they have numerous documentation for setting up a server. If you need help, shoot me a PM, I would love to help :)

    Yes it is possible. There are many hosting providers who provide multiple IP's to the customer and I hope for each new additional IP you need to pay seperately.

    I purchased Digitalocean's VPS service, and am now having trouble configuring OpenVPN on the droplet. I have tried to follow this tutorial: yaui.me/how-to-set-up-openvpn-in-30-seconds-or-less/.
    It appears like everything sets up properly, but when I go to access the Admin UI, it says that a connection cannot be established, and my internet is not routed through the VPN. Any idea why that would happen?

    Did you open the ports?

    I thought it could be not opening the ports, but I somehow couldn't find out how to do that after searching for it. Every tutorial I saw assumes you know how to do that, but I don't :(. Thanks for offering help. I think opening the ports should do it (if you can tell me how), but if it ends up not working, I'll skype you. Can't pm because I'm under 15 posts, and I'd have to download skype, which I don't think is necessary if it's just the port issue.

    Hello mate!
    You can use proxies to get multiple static IPs.
    You can get proxies by searching on any search engine. It will help you a lot. You can use proxies like Hola, etc.
