Intro: Hi, I've been trying to get a VPN and ssh command to work together. And I've been successful to the point where I can get on the server with
ssh user@hostname. But when the VPN is active, all of my internet passes trough that VPN.
Target: I'd like to use my own internet connection for everything other than that SSH connection.
Option breaks SSH > VPN: I've noticed that there is an option "Use this connection only for resources on its network" in the "Editing VPN" - "IPv4 settings" tab - "Routes..." button. It seemed like the solution, but if I enable that, I can't connect anymore with the "ssh user@hostname" command, it hangs till it times out.
Thoughts: My thoughts so far are that it does not work because the hostname(from ssh username@hostname) and the gateway(from the VPN settings) are different. But I don't know enough about ssh or VPN to know that.
Ideas? Is there like an option in ssh that I am overlooking? I tried
ssh -b gatewayFromVPN username@hostname but this didn't seem to work (and I doubt it should). Or is there an option in the VPN settings or something that could solve this?
Thanks in advance.

"Use this connection only for resources on its network" breaks SSH > VPN
