Re: remote app -- local data

have you tried setting your 'preferences | main | downloads' to your

The local drive doesn't exist on the remote computer, so I can't set any
preferences to it.

And it's not actually Firefox, that was just an example.  It's a custom
program that downloads stuff from a server that can only be accessed from a
certain IP address range.

Thanks anyway, though.

If all you need is to make it appear that the connection came from a different machine, either run a proxy on that machine (squid will handle http/ftp) or use ssh port-forwarding and run the apps locally. If you really have to run an app on the intermediate machine, mount your drive into it with NFS or samba - but since you mentioned it being slow, you probably won't like that.
