Yes, that could work. It is also a good idea compared to
I saw some solutions online involving iptables. I am extremely
reluctant to even consider this, as I believe it to be dangerous to be
messing with iptables on remote servers.
So, the bottom line is that I like your idea a lot.
That said, do you have a recommendation for a easy to use socks proxy
where you can specify outgoing IP address?
