Router & NAS Drive accesss on local network while on VPN

Recommended Posts

I am trying to set things up right on my network. I just purchased a new asustor NAS drive and am pretty new at having one. One thing that I have noticed is when I am using my NORD VPN on my windows and Linux machines both I am unable to access the network and or view the NAS drive with my current settings.


Once again when NORD vpn is running on both my Linux machine and Windows Machine I am unable to access the NAS or network devices. This is also the case trying to access my TP-Link router.


Is there a way to set up the network properly and access my NAS drive local level while I am running the VPN ? I wonder if Windows firewall is preventing me from doing something., . . but then again its the same story with the Linux machine also .


The networking file sharing thing has bothered me for some time between my Linux Machine and Windows machine. Neither will talk to each other with the NORD VPN on...


Can someone help setup my network properly and or can you suggest a solution for me ?


My Setup is pretty normal with just a router



– LINUX Machine

– Windows Machine

– NAS Drive
