- any kind of VPN will render you passive/not-connectable.
- pptp vpn is not really a vpn, it does not encrypt at all, it's just like an unencrypted tunnel.

to fix your issue:
- use a provider that has port forwarding. Windscribe, torguard, etc.
- if you made your own vpn server, then you need to do port forwarding on the VPN server with iptables. I've done this, it's not too hard, it's basically like setting up NAT rules.
