Cannot reach remote machine, but works with Linux and Windows

Hi, I've read the FAQS, searched the forum, scoured Google - nothing helpful (with this issue) found. Any insights? (please?)

I'm trying to connect to a server behind OpenVPN (2.4.7 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu on Ubuntu 20.04) and retain the local DNS routing (the VPN will not be used for web traffic, only used to access the remote web server).

It works great with Linux and Windows, I can access with a browser - but when I connect with OpenVPN Connect Android v3.3.1 (9079) - I can't pull up the webpage (Chrome). I know Android can be a little wonky with networking - so I'm hoping this is a simple "do THIS, dummy" solution...

Hey man, If possible, provide traceroute results from Linux, Windows machines, and Android when connected to the VPN to the target IP address for comparison.
