I am currently deployed to Kosovo. I have purchased the game and am trying to patch from Kosovo, which has a Serbian IP address. From what I am hearing from other people is that you only need a proxy server to patch, but without the proxy server, you can still play the game. I know that the EULA says that using a proxy server to play is unauthorized, but I don't believe this should apply to Deployed U.S. Soldiers. I am a resident of the United States, living on United States soil in another country. My mailing address (an APO) is considered a mailing address that is in the UNITED STATES. If i were to use the proxy server to patch, would I be flagged or banned, etc?

I am sure that Bioware would extend such a courtesy to our soldiers. Right Bioware?

Alright so i just got off the phone with the Customer Support, and they say it's good to go to patch the game with a proxy, but not play with a proxy. Any suggestions on good FREE proxy server programs to use?

You can set up the proxy without any special software-its all there under internet properties. A google search should produce a list of viable addresses you can use. If you continue having issues, post it up and I will try to help.

Thank You!!!!!!

I am commo lol. The NIPR Group Policies here are rather strict. It's handled by civilians, my G6 would never approve it, etc etc. I wish that were a possibility. Any good proxy servers that anyone knows about i can connect to through my browser?

Chrome rocks

Click on the wrench in the upper right corner, and go to options. this'll open a new browser tab...click on the link on the left that reads 'under the hood'. From there you will see a button that reads change proxy settings. This will bring up the internet options window (the same one in control panel in fact). Click on the connections tab and then click on the LAN settings button. This will open another config window, there is a check box that reads "Use a proxy server...." check that box and then enter the proxy address in the address field, make sure to enter the port number if it listed. Click ok and you are gtg. To disable just uncheck the "use a proxy" box, you can leave the address in the field.
