How to prevent Quickbooks from selecting zerotier IP address

I have two users needing to use QuickBooks in multi-user mode. One user will often use zerotier to access a local computer from home. When she remotes in from home and opens QuickBooks, QuickBooks selects the zerotier IP address instead of the local LAN IP address. Local LAN is on the 10.x.x.x subnet, zerotier is on the 172.x.x.x subnet.

When selecting between two IP addresses on the same computer, the network interface metric (NIM) should determine priority. The lower the network interface metric, the higher the priority. The NIM for the zerotier IP is 35. The NIM for the local LAN IP is 25. The local LAN IP should take priority. Therefore, the local LAN on the local computer should take priority. When I examine the QuickBooks connection it has grabbed the zerotier IP address instead of the local LAN IP address. This effectively prevents the second (local) user from accessing QuickBooks in multiuser mode.

Are there any suggestions for forcing QuickBooks to select the local LAN IP when opened by the remote zerotier user? Remote computer is Windows 10. Local computer is Windows 11.
