You're right! Some questions:
1. What should I do client-side so that wireguard only covers my VPS's
IP (and does not otherwise route traffic)? Will `AllowedIPs =
SERVER_IP/32` do it?
2. How do I get the in-VPN IP of the server? Is it `Address` in `[Interface]`?
3. I use ufw for the firewall on the server. Will ufw block my local
machine? If not, with what IP should I set ufw rules? (My local
machine doesn't have a static IP.) Of course, I could alternatively
expose the socks proxy to the world with a password; How secure will
that be?
