    I need a VPN/Proxy with a residential IP address

    I need a VPN or proxy with a normal residential IP (ie. from verizon/comcast etc..).
    Does anyone know of a service that does this?

    It needs to be an actual service, that will give me my own private IP address. I'm not looking for a list of open proxies that are banned on blacklists.

    It's better if you make your own proxy. Most proxies are blocked and blacklisted already.

    No specific budget, I will consider anything I can find.

    The idea is that the proxy would be private, only myself and the provider would know that IP is being used as a proxy, so it wouldn't be listed on any blacklists.

    My suggestion:
    Buy a vps, install openvpn on it. This way only you know the IP and it will be your own private vpn

    This is the way I have things setup on my laptop. Pretty useful when most public networks block cpanel ports, and very secure aswell. Let me know if you need help setting this up.

    That will give me an IP that traces back to a datacenter.
    The site I want to use checks the IP manually, so it needs to look like a regular home user, a datacenter IP looks like a proxy.

    You can't just set the rdns to something like ip-ip-ip-ip.client.companyname.com?


    edit: if you ask nicely, imountain (or resellers) might have some .biz.rr.com hosts

    Have you considered tor? Tor will probably give you a residential IP address most of the time.

    I need a residential IP as well, but tor won't cut it because I also need to control where the IP appears to be geographically.

    So far, the only solution is to use a dialup modem to dial into an ISP. Slow, but the IP is geographically where it needs to be, and it is treated as a residential IP address.

    Not sure if you know this but you can just add this to your config file

    StrictExitNodes 1
    exitnodes [comma-separated list of names]

    http://torstatus.blutmagie.de/

    ctrl+f for lsanca or hsd1.ca.comcast or etc, and select a few for exiting.

    Was going to recommend Tor as well, which is designed for something like this. The only other way I can think of is to ask a friend on a home connection or somehow buy a home wireless broadband account from a provider like Clear.

    Thanks for all the suggestions so far.
    imountain looks like what I wanted (based on their sites IP address anyway) but they dont have any VPS available.

    Tor wont work for what I want, the IP's are on proxy blacklists.

    Why don't you run the OpenVPN server on your desktop PC? You probably mean that you want a residential IP address that is not your own IP address, right?
