tor is basically a socks proxy. by default it listen only on localhost,
rejecting incoming requests from other interfaces, you only need to set it
up on your server to also listen on other interfaces and use it once
you're in the vpn. so, for example, if now you're using
once you set it up you can shutdown your local copy and use instead.
please refer to official man pages: https://tor.eff.org/tor-manual.html.en
and https://tor.eff.org/tor-manual-dev.html.en
