How to prevent being logged out of firewall management when connecting on VPN

When I am logged into a firewall (TZ series) and connect to that firewall with a VPN (NetExtender, Global Client, etc), I get logged out of the firewall. This seems to be a default setting as it happens on all the firewalls I manage. But I just can't find out where to disable it. It's a pain to troubleshoot a remote access VPN and have to log back into the firewall every time I connect on the VPN to test.

Does anyone know where I can disable this setting?

    Nope its not an option, once connected, the external IP is bound into the VPN stack.

    Use another machine or try VM on the same.
