So basicly I need a server connected directly to the Internet.
I have a server in America (which is currently offline due to Harddisk
failure), running

I could create a tunnel between my home and my server in America, but
won't my dail-in ISP interfere with the tunnel ? My dail-in ISP doesn't
use a firewall and/or proxy.
My server (in America) has 32 IP adresses, and I'll try to get one from
