JAP Proxy App

Simply download and install JAP from this website:


Then load the program from the start menu folder, run through the configuration of the program and then configure your internet browser as thus:

Internet Explorer > Connections > LAN Settings > Use a proxy server:

Address: localhost
Port: 4001

If you configure IE to use JAP then you may find several other applications will start working as they use Internet Explorer's setting's to connect to the internet. Otherwise, see if there is a Proxy button/tab in your program's settings.

There is also an anoymous feature to the program, but it does slow it down a little bit. You can also buy a subscription, but at the moment the program seems to have good speeds :)

You will need to have installed Java from www.java.com - however the JAP installer already has a Java downloader available if you don't have it already.

Happy surfing!

NOTE: The proxy does not seem to like it when you login to online profiles such as Facebook or YouTube - so I don't recommend using JAP for those. In that case, use something such as www.hidemyass.com, or search Google for "free proxy".

If you want to buy a subscription, you could also try Your Freedom.

Forwarding Gmail to Hotmail - POP3 and SMTP are now open to all Hotmail accounts!

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

You need to go to your Gmail Settings page, and go to "Get mail from another account". Use your Hotmail address, and use the following information:

username: username@hotmail.com
password: your password
POP3 server: pop3.live.com
Port: 995
SSL: Enabled

If that isn't working, try this hack version:


If this does not work, then you will need to link together your Gmail and Hotmail accounts by the method on this page:

Specifically using this feature (use an existing email address, which will be your Gmail address): https://accountservices.passport.net/PPNetworkHome.srf?lc=1033

For more information about all this or to use Outlook Express instead, go to this page: http://ask-leo.com/what_are_windows_live_hotmails_pop3_and_smtp_settings.html

Please email me if this is not working for you! :)
