When I'm out of the country, I want to make it look like I'm still there without a different country IP address.

Is this possible and if so how please?

You can use the ExitNodes directive in your torrc to specify which exit nodes your Tor may use. You can specify exit nodes by ip/mask, by nick or fingerprint, or by country. You can specify a country using the country code in curly brackets: {us} for United States, {ch} for Switzerland, etc..

Additionally, you can enable StrictNodes to make sure that Tor will stick to your specified exit nodes even if that means failure.

  • Could you tell me how to do this please or point me to instructions? Thanks.
