Why does my client lose internet when the proxy server connects to a VPN?

By akilrichardson0 ·
I setup "Squid" on my Raspberry Pi 4 to use it as a proxy server.
My laptop(Win10) is able to the browse via proxy once I specify the appropriate port.

The 2 devices are connected via ethernet cable.
I run into problems when I connect my Pi 4(Proxy server) to the internet via VPN tunnel.

My goal is to have my raspberry connect to the web via VPN, and use it as a proxy server for my laptop (Win10).

The Windows machine can successfully browse the internet using the Pi 4 as a proxy server, but loses connection once I connect the proxy to my VPN service.

The VPN is not the issue as I am able to web browse from the pi directly.The problem is that my laptop is unable to browse the web once I start the VPN service on my Pi 4.

any and all help is sincerely appreciated.

It's really irritating to lose internet connection or being slow down while connected to a VPN server. Anyways, what kind of VPN connection is your client using right now? If he is on free VPN then this might happen. Because I see lots of free VPN provides low speed which isn't usable though. Tell him to use paid VPN like HMA or ZenMate.
