    Default Accessing PC While Connected To VPN?

    I am setting up a new media server which will run Plex Server. I want to connect this machine to a VPN but I'm guessing I won't be able to access plex from another machine while it is connected.

    Is there any way round this?

    I think you are right, the server will then be on another network unless port forwarding does some magic.
    Certainly when I connect to a work VPN on my laptop I lose other network functionality..

    Can I ask why you need to connect it to a VPN?

    I want to also run bit torrent on it but I tend to use it through a VPN

    There must be a way around it but it is not something I am aware of.
    This is why I have Pi's to do certain things... Free's up the Media Server to do just that.
