>Why not just use an external proxy server?

Hmm. Well, though your suggestion, as well as SysApe9000's suggestion, is excellent and much more robust, my problem is that outside of my home LAN, the only server presence, the only control I have is my paid-for webhost which, sadly, does not allow SSH logins and, since I am on a shared server, does not allow me to set up and configure a proxy.

Sad, really.

Thank you folks for your input and feedback. This script has helped me much; I'm already getting fun ideas for network programming in Perl. I look forward to playing with your suggestions sometime in my future, just not right now. ::sighs::
