This might be handy for people out foreign to watch the Pro-12 when it resumes in September, the WC warm-up games or the GAA over the summer.

<S&#079;NG>
</S&#079;NG>
</S&#079;NG>First off, go to this site: http://nntime.com/proxy-country/Ireland-01.htm for a list of Irish proxy servers. It's probably best to copy and paste the IP addresses into MS word or some such and save them for future reference. Now follow the instructions for setting up a proxy server depending on which browser you are using.

Internet Explorer

1) Click "Tools" --&gt; "Internet Options" --&gt; "Connections" tab --&gt; "LAN settings".

2) Tick the box that says "Use a proxy server for your LAN".

3) In the "address" box, type the string of numbers that appears before the colon in the "IP Address" column of the Proxy server list (including full stops, but not the colon.

4) In the "port" box, type the number that appears after the colon.

5) Click "OK" --&gt; "OK".

6) Either close and reopen your browser, or simply open a new browser window.

7) Go to the site you want to use (RTE or whatever). If the proxy server is up and running, the site will load normally and you can navigate to the stream as you usually would. If not you will get an error message from your browser. If this happens, go back to step 1 and try another string of numbers from the list of proxy servers.

To return your connection settings to normal, simply untick the box you ticked in step 2, click "OK" --&gt; "OK" and restart your browser.

------------------------------------------------------------ --------------

Google Chrome

1) Click on the spanner icon immediately to the right of the address bar.

2) Click on "Options" --&gt; "Under the Hood" --&gt; "Change proxy settings..." --&gt; "LAN Settings".

Now go to step 2 of the Internet Explorer instructions above and follow them.

------------------------------------------------------------ --------------

Firefox

1) Click on the "Firefox" tab on the top left of the browser window.

2) Click "Options" --&gt; "Options" --&gt; "Advanced" tab --&gt; "Network" tab --&gt; "Settings".

3) Select "Manual proxy configuration" from the menu.

4) In the "HTTP proxy" box, type the string of numbers that appears before the colon in the "IP Address" column of the Proxy server list (including full stops, but not the colon.

4) In the "port" box, type the number that appears after the colon.

5) Tick the box that says "Use this proxy server for all protocols".

6) Click "OK" --&gt; "OK".

7) Either close and reopen your browser, or simply open a new browser window.

8. Go to the site you want to use (RTE or whatever). If the proxy server is up and running, the site will load normally and you can navigate to the stream as you usually would. If not you will get an error message from your browser. If this happens, go back to step 1 and try another string of numbers from the list of proxy servers.

To change your connection settings back to normal, repeat steps 1 and 2, and then click "No proxy". Click "OK" --&gt; "OK" and restart your browser.

------------------------------------------------------------ --------------

Safari

1) Click on the cog icon to the right of the address bar.

2) Click on "Advanced" tab --&gt; "Change Settings".

Now go to step 2 of the Internet explorer instructions and follow them.

Musha, arrahand begorrah, just doing my little bit for the diaspora,I've been that wandering Paddy myself, paying to see matches in sweaty halls and pubs in such exotic locations as Woodside,Dorchester,Bondi Junction, St. Kilda and Kilburn. And lucky that I was near some place that would actually show them for a fee, but I'd still rather have watched them on a laptop. The t'interwebby yoke wasn't as developed as it now when I was in my gallivanting heyday, however.

Nice work Paulie!

Also you can do this :-

1) Download firefox (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/fx/?ref=logo)
2) download the "modify headers (https://add&#111;ns.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/add&#111;n/modify-headers/)" add on
3) use a spoof Irish IP address (http://www.wikihow.com/Find-a-Website%27s-IP-Address) e.g Irish Times, Independent, RTE etc etc

The video below shows you how to set up modify headers, but remember you can't use 12.13.14.15 - you will need to change that to the Irish IP address you are spoofing.

I'd be dubious that some of these proxy servers will have enough horsepower or bandwidth to cope with lots of people watching streaming video through them.

I'd imagine the Irish TV stations do a "sweep" of the proxy servers tapping into them from time to time , but the servers are being constantly updated, and you should always be able to find a subscription-free server you can use


Here is another site with free Irish proxy servers listed ( in addition to above site)


http://aliveproxy.com/proxy-list/proxies.aspx/Ireland-ie


To reduce the danger of being dissppointed if there are too many people trying to view live streams via a proxy server ( might happen for an All Ireland final or international), as mikerob pointed out, there are also subscription proxy server services available. The below is US$9.99 a month, and it supports Irish proxies and I have heard good reports about it's reliabaility.

Hi fitzy,
Is this still working for you. I followed the instructions for the modify headers and couldn't get it to work. I'm over here in Germany.

Thanks

I use the Modify Headers extension on Firefox as well. Sometimes you actually need to open the Modify Headers tab to get it to work. Other timesit works away fine no problem.

I think it's how they look at your Geo location i.e some sites use headers to determine your location, others seem to look at the actual IP address. Obviously the actual IP address is harder to spoof.

If you just want Irish TV, then www.telefis.com (http://www.telefis.com) offer good safe proxies. It's 10 a month or 50 a year. I used them last year on holiday and they were great.


or if you want clean proxies for elsewhere (inc Ireland), then try this


https://www.identitycloaker.com/amember/signup.php


In combination with these, another thing to try (haven't tried it myself) is the following.... If you are abroad, and either you or someone you know, has a Sky subscriptionin Ireland, Sky are now offering "Sky on the go" for iphones or laptops - for free. So for example, if you have emigrated to London, you could potentially watch Sky in the UK (inc RTE) on your laptop, based on the fact that your folks have a Sky sub back in Ireland, and the only cost to you would be one of these ip proxies. Worth someone trying it out. See sky.com/skygo


EDIT : I just signed up for Skygo and it's just Sky Channels, but handy for Sky Sports.
