I have a couple of questions about your suggestions.

I have tried connecting to mythweb directly with my browser from work
and alternately by trying to run a browser within an SSH session from
my mythweb server and found the "normal" method *much* faster.  Is
there some setting(s) that need to be made to get the SSH'd browser
session to run faster?

Second, how involved is setting up a VPN?  Any more than setting up
the SSH connection?
