[qubes-users] Firewall Question - accessing LAN when appvm is using vpnVM?

I prefer to us a vpn proxy when possible so most of my appvms are setup to use a vpn proxy vm. The problem is a few of my appvms need access to my home server on my LAN but so far I cant seem to figure out how to access my server on an appvm when it is connected to a vpnvm.

Somehow this seems like a "firewall thing" but am not sure how to go about fixing it, would I make an exception (somehow?) for my local server in the vpnvm firewall or make another proxy vm that first allows that access and otherwise sends traffic on to the vpnvm?

Yes, you would need to adjust the firewall, so that traffic from that
qube destined for the local network didn't get sent to the VPN. You'd
need to do this on the vpnvm directly.

I think a better route would be to have another qube connected to
sys-firewall, with access to the local network (only), and then sync
files as you wish to the VPN connected qubes.
