Howto disable saving Posters IP Adress

I want to make an anonymous board. It shall be accessible only for selected people which I already can do by configuring tomcat. I thought about everybody using the user "Anonymous" but the problem is, that I logged in as admin can see the different ip adresses used by the different "Anonymous" user. If I would I could track down the "Anonymous" user. So how do I get JForum to not show and even better not save that specific data, that I can't even think about finding out who's that specific "Anonymou"s.
