I *think* the 'interface' setting is what you want:

“interface”: (Introduced in tsNet version 1.4.0) Specify the interface, 
IP address or host name to be used for the outgoing connection.

This should be set to the local ip address of the interface (i.e. VPN) 
you want the socket connection to come from on the local machine.

Warmest Regards,


P.S. Hopefully Charles can correct this if I'm wrong!
