VPN to access specific internal containers

Is it possible to create a VPN that :
1) I can access from outside the local network (WAN?) and
2) only allows access to specific ips on the LAN?

For example, If I'm out and about and I want to restart a game server or something. Connect to the VPN, ssh into game server 1, ssh into game server 2.

I think I can figure out the basic VPN part (https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/OpenVPN_in_LXC)

but I'm not sure what I need to know to restrict access on the LAN, i.e. only allow access to specific servers on the LAN.
Is this a case for VLAN tagging (https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Network_Configuration#sysadmin_network_vlan?
