I can fake give away a phone# and change CID on my VoIP all I want, but if I want to get a call from someone else then the phone # I give out better be able to reach my phone. Same problem with the IP address except every single reply packets would have the other side ringing your number.
You can spoof the orginating IP address of a packet very easily, but don't expect to be able to run any regular internal protocols without having the ack/handshaking packets coming back to you. The rest of the internet have to be able to route that reply somehow. So claiming a "proxy" can fake an IP still does not explain how the person can use it to communicate correctly.
Don't forget you have a port(s) open for this.
You can run *any* protocol and *any* service.

Why can't it be as simple as a drive-by with a high gain wifi antenna (e.g. pringles can one) or even someone living in the same building stealing WiFi for accessing/uploading to the robocaller service?
A high gain Pringles can? I really, really doubt that. Besides that would require 5 (or 6) different people running around to the other side of Guelph with an empty Pringles can. heh (had a mental image of this, made me giggle). Though the person above claims to have reach Taiwan or something with a pringles can...
There are some people in this forum who have really high gain stuff that they can wire to that residential Rogers 99-ip. But it would have to be up on a tower, be in line of sight, and cause brain cancer with the power it would pump out to be able to reach the 80-km away and then the people would have to take the tower down w/ no one noticing so that the investigators wouldn't find out.
Seem plausible to you? Does it really require Myth Busters to solve? Is it even cost effective (never mind the labour)?
I wonder if Milnoc still thinks this can't be done?
Now does anyone see the issue with the investigator scratching his head when asked in court how it could be done?
Does it seem like someone is playing dumb?
