Unable to activate Public Internet access

Hi everyone, as written on the post's title i'm having difficulties to publish reports to the web(public). It asks me to activate public internet access but it continues to say that i need to connect from a virtual network.

I've not been able to find a solution unfortunately.
Any insights on what could be the problem?

You cannot activate the Publish to the web if Block Public Internet is enabled. See this:


If it is enabled, you must disable the Block Public Internet Access, but because Public Internet is blocked, you must do that from behind the VPN. You might need to contact your Domain Admin for assistance here.

MCSA: BI Reporting

But i don't understand why it's blocked. I'm the Domain Admin. I've created a website to use PowerBI and show some reports as a portfolio. Why do i need to use a VPN if I'm the only person using this domain or this powerBI account. What are the necessary steps to solve this? It's very complicated for a single user to understand what's going on.
