I have an active VPN connection (L2TP) and try to access a server with IP in the remote network.

If my local network uses the same subnetwork (, connections to that subnet are not routed through the VPN, so the connection to the remote server fails. If my local network uses a different subnetwork (e.g., the connection succeeds.

Is there a way to access my server in the first case?

You will need to change one or the other.
