I am not quite clear what a VPS is and how it works. so a VPS is a virtual computer that has internet connection, right? 1. Does it work exactly like a computer? Does it have a start button, My Documents, etc like a real computer? 2. If I can run a software on my own laptop, then that means I can run it on a VPS too? 3. Would my ISP know that I am using a VPS? 4. does the VPS run completely independent of my home connection? I can do whatever the hell I want and my own ISP won't know, right? I can download movies from torrent sites, I can run SB, I can run GSA, my ISP is not involved in any way, right? 5. So what does my ISP see? As far as they are concerned, my computer is off and I am sleeping? I just want to make sure my home connection is NOT being used when doing things in VPS. can you confirm that?
