The use-case test for the DPA may needs another item: USB connection is down when I turn on VPN, on a Windows 10 Pro machine when I was back in China. I have no anti-malware "malware" running on my machine, and I was using a personal account thus no firewall restriction to be my best knowledge.
This being the case, I am loosing all the connection when I turn on my VPN. This simply does not make sense. The USB cable is stuck tighly where it is supposed to go, and I don't see a good reason why VPN connection should block such physical connection.
This become less a problem when I am back from work, but it is a solid question that any member in the software team should be responsible of.
