Using a Linux Server to Browse the Net
Hmm, With one of my particular Linux servers I am wondering wheter it is possible to install a package to allow me to Browse the Internet with it.
Basically something that would allow me to remote access the server and browse the net with it.
Are there any such applications that make this a reality?
Any reason why?
For you to run a graphical brower on the server would require X to be installed which i'm pretty sure you wouldn't want.
If it's just for anonymity then look at setting it up as a proxy or something.

Looking for fetch the contents of certain URL's to the server. And Wget doesnt allow the server to imitate a session like a real browser would.
try Lynx. it's a text-based web browser that's probably even installed on your machine by default.

You can use lynx to dump pages to your hard drive
lynx -d http://www.yahoo.com > yahoo.html
that will download the yahoo page to your hard drive.
You can write a bash script that will download all the sublinks
if you are interested.
Yah Lynx works fine
Was a PITA to install with all the additional RPM's I needed to fetch, but I've got itworking now.
FYI, links ships with modern RedHat based distros, and is smaller and easier to use than lynx (it supports some JS, tables, frames etc.).
Yes - links works well enough. But you are not going to get graphical internet unless you install X with a window manager. Plus you will need the fonts and Firefox. Then you will need a remote desktop like VNC.
