RDP only works trough VPN when routing and remote access is enabled on windows firewall outbound (allow) [closed]

        just a bit confused on this and seeking some clarification..
So rdp works without a problem when connected from somwehere within the local network to the machine in questing. (this is one of the confusing part) But when when trying to connect trough a vpn connection it instantly fails, unless routing and remote access is enabled as a rule on the firewall on the machine we want to connect to. I'm just wondering what that does have to do with the vpn? Is it possible the routing tables on the machine on the other side of the vpn are not updated unless this is on? We are connecting with an ip and not computer name. Also the all icmp pings work without that firewall rule on. Basically everything works except the rdp. thank you
