How can I leverage PRTG to obtain the total bandwidth used by a server? I need the total throughput in/out on a server.

Set up SNMP on the server and set up PRTG to monitor what you need.
Alternately, if the server is connected to a managed switch, you could run SNMP on the switch and get all the ports traffic and, thus, the traffic for each port.  I think this is a much more flexible approach in that you get more network information than just for the server with one setup instead of many.
