VPN blocking access to umbrel.local

I run a VPN 24x7 at home and never had an issue with umbrel.local until today. I wasn’t able to access umbrel.local, including via SSH in Terminal. I tried almost everything and was about to give up thinking the hardware had malfunctioned. Last ditch effort I turned off my VPN and it worked. I access with no problems. I’m just not sure why/how the VPN is blocking access to umbrel.local. Any thoughts?

Edit: Nevermind. I figured it out. There’s a setting in my VPN provider software (Mullvad) to enable/disable “local network sharing.” The setting was disabled so that was blocking access to umbrel.local. I recently upgraded my laptop and reinstalled Mullvad so that switch must have been disabled by default.
