Hang on - you want the shell to RUN locally, or you want to be able to
run a shell on the Pi and SEE it locally? Which?

If as I suspect you want to run the shell on the Pi but see it locally
(which is the usual case) then it doesn't natter who starts the VPN>
Once it's UP, you have a network connection "direct" to the Pi and NAT

Is there any reason the connection should not be up all the time? Just
tell the Pi to get the connection up and keep it up. It wil be there
when you need it. Or ask it to poll a tell-tale on your server - if a
certain file is present, you want the connection maintained, otherwise
the Pi should wait (say) five minutes before checking again,
