Vpilot keeps disconnecting when i use audio for vatsim

hello everyone, i recently got back into using vatsim. but im having a problem with AFV And Vpilot.
whenever i use vpilot on its own, it works fine, but when i use audio for vatsim with it, it disconnects! is there a way to fix this?
ive tried:
rebooting my router and adding firewall exceptions to my sim and vpilot.

AFV is used by controllers, not pilots.
