Bitdefender VPN blocks PLEX server Settings?

While my Bitdefender VPN is on I am unable to access my PLEX server settings. I've set up split tunneling for the PLEX media server on the VPN so I'm not sure what's happening. This is occurring while trying to access the PLEX server settings while on the same computer that the PLEX server is located so I'm not remoting in either. Does Bitdefender VPN just not work along with PLEX?
