<aside> 💡 It is entirely possible to use a VPN on a Flaneer workstation, the only thing is that you need to configure your VPN to allow Split Tunnelling on a specific IP address: 169.254.169.254

This is an IP Address that’s use to communicate with Flaneer’s backend and cannot be blocked, otherwise Flaneer will not be able to recognize the machine.
