Ok so my problem is my server uses usenet and I need/want to use a vpn so that makes me use a vpn on my emby server due to them being on the same pc. Now when using a vpn (nord) I cant connect directly to my server and remotely on my devices. Any thing i can do?

@Doofus did you have to configure your vpn for Emby?

Sounds like the nord app is routing you in a way that's obscuring the local IP. For remote connections, you need to portforward through their firewall. I don't think they allow that. I use Torguard for this.

Locally you have to bind the machine address in Emby, Dashboard-Network.  Remote connection won't work unless the vpn service allows port forwarding.  If vpn service doesn't allow port forwarding you have to manually assign your External Domain with you actually WAN address or DDNS.

how does one find the local ip address to bind it to the machine address?

how would one bind it to the machine address?

Apply your LAN address in the "Bind to local network address:" on Dashboard-Network.  Assuming you are having difficulty connecting to Emby with local devices while you are running your VPN.
