comment Load local file in place of remote file (HTTP) address in Windows
It worked perfectly - took about 15 minutes to set up and I've never used privoxy before. Thanks again for the recommendation.

comment Load local file in place of remote file (HTTP) address in Windows
Hi, thanks for the response. I think this might be overly complicated for what I'm hoping to achieve (see new information provided above). However I will keep looking into it as a proxy solution may be necessary.

comment Set up a home VPN to allow web browsing from remote network
Awesome! It worked with my dreamhost account, and would you believe that it is faster than connecting directly to most web servers from my ISP. I guess Dreamhost has a better path to my country than most American servers. I can tell it is working: set up the SOCKS proxy in Firefox but not Safari. When I go to a "show me my IP" website using both browsers, I get different IP addresses. Thanks so much! Such a simple solution.

Cooool. I actually have SSH access to a Dreamhost server. I will see if that works. That would save me from using my home bandwidth.
