How to use a different VPN in VMware then the one in host

Hey there,

I need some help with setting up a different vpn in the VMware.

I am currently using a vpn on the host but would also like to use a vpn to a different adress from within the VM.

However, when i try to use the VPN from within the VM, it connects but when i try to use the connection to open up a website it's not working.

Anyone knows how i can fix this?

Workstation version? (Player or Pro? v15, v16, or earlier?)

VM network setting? (Bridged, NAT, or custom)

Workstation Player v16,

 

VM network setting ( NAT)

i've tried multiple things and it seems that as soon as i use a vpn on the host, i can't connect to the internet on the guests ones.

When i turn of the vpn on the host, i can connect to the internet through different vpns
