vpn/ssh/? questions


I have a few questions on a vpn/ssh setup.

I play online poker for a living, I will be in the states for a few months but want to continue to play online while there (I have residence in canada). I don't want the poker site seeing my american ip address/network at all, I just want to remotely connect to my home network, use my laptop in america but use the internet connection in canada without possibility of the poker client seeing my vpn/ssh/?connection. The poker clients have stuff in them to try to detect remote type connections from what I have read.

Ideally in my home in Canada I would just connect to a hardware based device that I can establish a secure connection with from my american internet connection/laptop. Once connected my laptop will go out the american internet connection, connect to my home in Canada and then go out on the internet there.. so everything I would do on my laptop would be using the canadian internet connection.. essentially making my laptop in america part of my home network in canada. Is this possible without the poker client knowing its travelling through an american internet connection? I would want to have my router in american connect to the router in canada, making the secure connection that way, so I would not have to run any sort of server/client software on my laptop as the poker client I believe looks at your process list. Is this a possibility?

thanks all!

Setup a VPN server at home and then simple VPN into your network which will make your connection look like it is part of your home network.

This is what I was thinking but I am unsure if its detectable if you are travelling through a vpn, especially if someone/thing was looking for that sort of thing. I may just not bother, I don't want to risk getting my account banned, unless I knew for absolute certainty that is undetectable its not worth the risk I think.

You might put the client in it's own virtual machine and put the VPN client on that, then block the client using iptables from contacting anything other than the VPN server. The idea is that everything will go through the VPN, but having it also in a VM ensures that it can't get any information about the external network, whatever that might be.

Or another option is to use x2go or something similar to log in to your Linux system back home and run the browser itself back in Canada.

Just two guesses.

Your IP will appear to be from your house and AFAIK vpn activity is hardly "traceable"
