Can't connect to droplet when using VPN

VPN Ubuntu 18.04

I’m running an Ubuntu 18.04.2 on my droplet, I have NordVPN installed on the droplet, and switch proxies regularly.

When I try and connect to my instance via SSH while NordVPN is connected on the droplet, I get time out errors and can’t connect. Neither can my droplet communicate with my database using trusted sources.

Has anyone got any suggestions on how to make my droplet accessible.

I also use NordVPN and haven’t had any issues. Is it possible that the DNS is still propagating and the cache on the NordVPN servers is older than, when connecting directly through your ISP?
