[SOLVED] Can't access Proxmox over VPN and Virtual Machines

Hello folks!
I just set up a new Proxmox Server and I wondered why I can't access the GUI or in general the IP from Proxmox when connected over a VPN or when I am sshd into a VM hosted on Proxmox.

I testet something:
- when I'm connected over VPN (WireGuard or FritzBox) I can't reach the UI and can't Ping the IP of Proxmox BUT I can reach the VM's hosted on Proxmox.
- when I'm connected over VPN (WireGuard or FritzBox) and try to ssh into a VM hosted on Proxmox it works, but from there I also can't ping the Proxmox IP adrress

But why? I can't figure out how to get this to work.
It would be glad if someone could help me! :)

So I found a solution, in this Reddit Post they explained it, I had to add my net to the allowed ip's to get it working with WireGuard. Weirdly also now the Fritz!Box VPN does work now!
