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.
