     Why would you think that?  Have you bothered to read the documentation?
Please read the descriptions of the configuration statements in the torrc file,
in particular, the Address, ORPort, ORListenAddress, DirPort, and
DirListenAddress statements.
     Perhaps your difficulty is, instead, that your neighbor has neither given
you the authority to reconfigure his/her router nor made the reconfiguration
changes himself/herself?  Perhaps you have yet to ask the neighbor in question
whether he/she is willing to donate his/her bandwidth or potential liability
to legal hassles to your project?
