    HELP: Different proxies/hotspot shielding when using programs?

    I have a question about using the neopet programs while you're doing a mixture of different proxies (or using hotspot shield in my case).

    So when I leave my computer overnight, ideally I would like to run the "Pet Trainer" program on my main account to train pets (therefore no proxy), but I would also like to leave another program to run on other accounts that don't share the same IP for security purposes and not get chain-iced (ex: AutoBuying). Let's say before I sleep I'll activate hotspot shield AFTER I log in the Pet Training program, and then open the other programs with different accounts. I know these different accounts are going to have the different IP, but what if the timer is up for the Pet Training program and it will do its action for a few seconds, will my IP suddenly change or will it remain as my main IP? The point is, I don't want my accounts' IPs to clash since I don't want to be frozen for whatever action I do on the other accounts.

    Hope I explained myself properly but that's what I'm concerned about. I know different proxies will simply this whole process but I don't like using proxies anymore-- they're too slow and are still sorta unsafe (I used free ones).

    +Rep for answers that will help my situation.

    By commonly accepted knowledge, the Pet Trainer should keep your main IP, as only your IP is logged during login/logout.

    (hence a lot of cheaters log in under proxy/VPN, then turn it off and use their main connection to speed up site surfing)

    Ohh that's exactly what I needed to know. I always thought every action makes it record your IP, so I panicked if I accidentally clicked a page with hotspot shield on my main while it's still activated. Thanks
