Mac cannot connect to local server while TorGuard VPN active

Rate this question



I have discovered that I lose all access to local servers when I active TorGuard VPN on my MacBook Pro.

My setup is that I have a MacBook Pro (MacOS) wire-connected to a router, which my iMac server is also wire-connected to. The router is wire-connected to my cable modem, which is connected to the Internet.

With TorGuard VPN not running, I can see and access the iMac server and all other locally connected systems.

With TorGuard VPN running, I can see the iMac server, but any attempt to connect to it fails.

Searching for solutions, I found this link (server & VPN issue) that although not exactly my issue, points out that there is a hierarchy of connections so theoretically I should be able to list local LAN access higher than VPN access and my Mac would attempt to connect locally before using the VPN to get to the internet.  Unfortunately, even when running TorGuard VPN is not listed as a service.

So, other than turning off the VPN every time I need to access the local mac server, how do I access the local server and use TorGuard VPN at the same time.

Thanks for any help!
