Nord VPN website blocked by Virgin Media?

I have been researching how to solve a limitation of Carrier Grade Network Address Translation with my Virgin Ultimate Ooomph bundle mobile SIM.

Some reports suggest that an outgoing connection to a vpn can then be used in reverse to allow devices on the LTE device's LAN to be communicated with.

Several recommend Nord VPN however their website doesn't work when I am connected to my Virginedia Hub. If I connect over EE 4G it works fine, then fails again when I reconnect to VM.

Is this a policy of Virgin Media or a setting in the hub that needs changing by me?

Thanks

p.s. If there's a recommended way to enable incoming connections to a device behind a CG-NAT IP address then that would solve the real problem.

Re: Nord VPN website blocked by Virgin Media?

It appears to be "Web Safe Settings" as when I turn that off the problem goes.

I'd like a better solution than just on or off. Can VPNs be added as one of the on/off options.

My children aren't going to install a VPN to access illicit material, and I'd still like to have the Web Safe on to.protwct them from accidental or malicious links.
