Why doesn't Smart View work over VPN?

Hi folks,

I am trying to connect my Tab A to my Samsung Smart TV using Smart View for casting tablet contents, but it won't allow me to connect while I'm using a VPN on the tablet. Why on earth not please?!

It just disconnects "because I'm using a VPN on my tablet".

Any solutions please to get around this issue.
(I want to continue using VPN.)

Many thanks in advance.

Once you use a VPN you are on a different network. You need the VPN at router level.

You do not require VPN at the router level. Local traffic like connecting to your tv should stay local why would it need to go through a vpn to come back ? I can see my roku connect to the tv then complain about vpn being enabled. So either samsung is killing the connection when it detects vpn or most roku is.
