VPN on cellular network, private network addresses

When adding new server, using cellular connection, the error message says that private network addresses cannot be set.
In general it is valid (server and client is not on the same network segment), but in case of vpn connection activated (see other screenshots) private network addresses are available and valid and should be allowed even for cellular connection.
(e.g. I can access my computers using private addresses with remote desktop application if vpn is on)

    I'm running into the same exact issue. This workflow used to work a few months ago. Not sure what Plex changed in their clients to make this connections through VPNs to fail :( .
