My previous ISP had a proxy server that I could use to connect to my web

it doesn't let me check on Internet connectivity, and it breaks a couple
of links that I'd prefer to use the full URL rather than relative to the
I do that by running a local name server which traps calls to my
external domain name and resolves it to 127.0.0.1. I can then enable or
disable this name server at will so that connecting to bandsman.co.uk
will either connect to the external or internal versions on demand.
Why not try that?
