How to change the ip of a remote server

Hello, I have a server with Debian 10.

I would like to know if it would be possible to install some kind of a VPN on my remote server to change my ip WITHOUT being disconnected via SSH. (because I tried to install NordVPN but when I activate it, all my prompts close and I need to restart the server)

Hello @Yannek I have a physical Debian 10 server (it’s not a Droplet). I would just like to be able to connect from my PC to my server via SSH / VNC and then once connected, from the desktop to my server when I access google.com the ip that google sees must be different than the one on my server.

Hi, I am not sure if I got your idea. So, you are sitting at your PC, being sshed to your droplet (Debian 10). You are opening google.com in your internet browser on your PC, and web server of google.com is getting http request from your internet browser with source IP which is different both to your PC’s public IP and your droplet’s public IP. Do you mean the configuration like that ?

In order to use a browser and go to websites with a different ip.
