I live in Canada and I recently spun up a CentOS droplet configured in NYC2. With my Netflix account, I'm restricted in what I can view by my location. I was wondering if I can use my droplet to tunnel packets (DNS, etc.) so that I can get access to US content. From the research I did, I think I could setup an SSH tunnel, but I'm not quite sure I have a complete handle on what I need to do to make this work. My successful "end state" is that for any device within my house, I can just change the DNS server (to an IP of a computer in my house, or my droplet's IP) and then get US Netflix content...like other providers of that type of service advertise.
Can someone give me advice on how I can accomplish what I'm trying to do?
