    RE: Help with proxies
    @mfillpot - The proxies in the link provided by hazmyr are an example. If I try to navigate to any site with flash content, it doesn't load. This renders some sites basically unusable. I will try to research squid and ssh pass-throughs. @hazmyr - Thanks, but as stated, those seem to experience the issue I described. I've done a little more research, and it seems like a VPN might be what I'm looking for. I'll keep researching the possibilities, but if anyone has experience in this area I would appreciate it.

    Help with proxies
    Hello everyone. I'm about to temporarily move out of the US for work reasons, but I want to continue to be able to access the internet with an American ip address. I have a debian Virtual Private Server. I'm wondering if it would be possible to set up a proxy server on it. I've played around with free proxy servers before, but I notice most of those give you the html of the page you're looking at and nothing else. Would it be possible to configure a proxy that would relay embedded media such as flash video exactly as it would appear on a browser in the US? Preferably encrypted for privacy reasons? If you could recommend some software or at least point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
