Sorry miss read your post - you can do what you're after, but this is a
proxy in this case.... i.e. the remote box is acting as a proxy for your
adsl connected server. If you're wanting to route all the traffic from your
adsl connected box to the remote server, then I would look at using a VPN
between the boxes.... you might be able to use squid on the remote server to
be your proxy also.
