When using VPN, won't connect to seeds

Hello

So when I go to download a torrent, it shows that I have plenty of seeders and peers, but it cannot connect to either of them when I'm using a VPN. I have tested turning it off momentarily, and it started to connect and download. Then, when I turned the VPN back on, the seeds disconnect and download speed when to 0 kb/s. Relatively new at this so I may have VPN configured wrong or something. I'm using vpn.sh (paid service) server on openVPN program called tunnelblick.

Sounds like your VPN is blocking torrents activity when it detects it.
