What I propose to do is create a VPN link to a service provider in Nassau.
In this way, I hope to provide the client with "anonimity".  That is, no one
can trace him past Nassau.  We have installed a Proxy Server here and that
seems to keep him safe from prying eyes.  The big concern is that the
information being transferred can be "examined" and the source determined.
