Mobile apps for LAN devices

Just installed the VPN for my Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, and had to immediately turn it off because with it on, I can no longer use mobile apps for the many networked audio and video devices around my home. A couple of examples: the Roon music server app for my NAS drive cannot find the Roon core server running on my desktop PC, and the control apps for my home theater receiver can't find the receiver on the network. Turning the VPN off resolves this issue.

There doesn't seem to be any options in the VPN app itself to address issues like this. Is there something I can do in my router settings, perhaps, to allow the VPN to function when sending and receiving requests from the Internet, but allows traffic on my LAN to pass between devices unhindered?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Unfortunately it seems you're correct, the "enable local device access" option that is available on the desktop version is not available on the iOS and Android FPNs. I'll forward this as feedback to the dev team.
