    I would like to know why the VPN is causing disconnection to my
    windows vps? I have used the vpn company's software and previously openvpn
    same results. I cant give you logs because I have to reboot vps when this happens
    because the vps stalls (freezes) when this issue happens - I can't do anything
    with the vps until reboot of vps.

    Note: the VPS works fine if I don't connect VPN
    Thank you.

    "Attempting to reconnect" and it freezes during this.

    There's no details.  Honestly it just sounds like the system has problems with you connecting via VPN or something.  I'd probably suggest it's the VPN's problem, but I don't know because there's no information related to how you're connecting and what you mean by stalling/freezing.  Logs would be much more helpful.  But the way it's currently described noone can say for certain what the problem is.

    When you connect to a VPN, the VPS's IP would be changed so your remote session disconnected. The easiest way is to install Teamviewer Host on the VPS, then you can still use Teamviewer to connect to the VPN while using VPN.

    I think your right; sounds plausible. Is there a way to prevent my VPS's IP from changing thereby causing the disconnection?


    about teamviewer


    After I install Teamviewer on the VPS and start the program, I am to remote access the very same VPS? You lost me, could you explain what is happening; how it might play play out? Thank you.

    There is no way to keep the same IP while using VPN, unless you use HTTP/Sock proxies. With Teamviewer Host you will have a permanent ID so you can access your VPS anytime. Just install Teamviewer Host and test it yourself: https://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/windows/

    Slight misunderstanding; I'm happy to keep VPN company's assigned IP whilst using VPS. It was mentioned that the VPN IP may be causing the disconnection from the VPS due to battle of IP's between VPN and VPS. So my question is their a way to adjust settings of Windows to prevent the disconnection from the VPS due to VPN.


    As I said before when I don't use the VPN, the VPS stays connected forever, its only when I connect the VPN on the VPS that the disconnection from the VPS occurs.


    Thank you in advance.
