@Sosthene@TallTim Cleary I am still lacking in understanding but I think something may have just clicked. A VPN may not be what I need at all. If all the software I want to run is on my computer, then VPN doesn’t help because it is only useful for stuff hosted in the cloud, the encrypted tunnel from here to there, anonymity through the remote server’s ip address. Anything on my server will have my ip address, period. Tor gives anonymity to BTC and LN, not VPN. Is this correct?
