Hi everybody. I'm new to the forum. Seems like a great place and I was hoping to get some help with an issue I have.

I live in Canada, but I'm going to be living in the States over the summer. The problem I have is that I need to be able to connect to the internet via my Canadian connection, and not have anyone see the US origin. Essentially, I need it to look like I am sitting infront of my computer in Canada. My original plan was to leave my tower in Canada connected to the internet and bring my dual monitors (which are a necessity) to the States with me, hook them up to another computer I'll have down there, and then remotely access my home pc using Windows Remote Desktop (with Terminal Server 6.0 for multi-monitor support) and use that to access the internet. (As a side note, I was going to use Windows RD because I require the connection to be as close to real-time as possible, and no other software I tried was as fast.)

I was fine with that until I heard that I can bring my entire set up down with me and tunnel the traffic through my Canadian router, or use something called a "dummy box", which I would much prefer over remote access. I don't know how to do this and I had a couple of questions about it. Will this hide my origin? As I stated earlier, it is essential that this looks no different than if I was actually sitting in front of my computer in Canada. Also, can someone please provide me with a link or even keywords I can Google? I tried searching for it but couldn't find anything.

Any info you guys could provide me to help set this up would be greatly appreciated.

why exactly is it so critical that your Internet traffic looks like it's coming from Canada?
