Because running security-circumventing daemons on a colocated server is a dicey proposition and standard systems etiquette suggests that I get syadmin approval first.
Also because it's possible that without prior approval sysadmins won't actually notice what I'm doing until after the 97-day grace period. "Getting away with it" isn't the same thing as "being allowed to do it", so I'm requesting clarification.
I'm also requesting techincal clarification. Does Dreamhost run SOCKS5/SQUID proxies on their server for this purpose, or would I have to compile and run my own (and restart the proxy when the box gets rebooted)?
