VPN/Proxy/Safety Help Please!
Hello everyone! I've recently gotten back into Neopets and I want to start using some sort of safety on my accounts. I have logged into my Main and my Side account from my Home IP address. This address has never been used on Neopets before, since it's a brand new home with a brand new Internet Plan. I have a few questions to ask:
Is it bad that I have logged into my Main and Side from my home address?
I've logged into my Side only ONCE, can the IP attached to that account be changed?
What is a VPN and how will it protect my accounts?
If I was to Autobuy and such on a different account, should I use a Proxy?
What other precautions should I take?
Is it OK to AoB on my Main?

1. If you are flouting the Neopet rules, yes it does matter. If you cheat on one and don't cheat on the other but use the same IP, TNT could ban both.
2. Your IP could potentially change if you have a dynamic one, but the IP address logged might not. Also, keep in mind that even if your IP address changes, the relative location/IP range could stay roughly the same. You need to check with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to find out if you have a dynamic IP address. They should usually state this on your website. You can also check like: http://superuser.com/questions/27052...p-on-windows-7
3. http://lifehacker.com/5940565/why-yo...for-your-needs Should let you hide your IP. Should also be more reliable than proxies.
4. From what I've read, yes or a VPN. From what I've read, TNT only log the IP upon login. I'm not sure how you could login with a proxy and bot without it, however. Though in my case, being a very long distance from NP's servers, a crappy true buy time means that ABing with a proxy is practically impossible (Plus, I don't care. I AB on my main and my main doesn't have anything worth considering anyway)
