Tor gets my public ip address wrong. No wonder you cannot reach me.

I'm behind NAT on my ISP's router. I'm reachable on my ORPort until I set up my VPN. I use split tunnelling to exclude certain processes such as tor.exe. ORPort traffic is excluded from the VPN BUT tor thinks my IP address has changed from my real public address to the VPN tunnel's public address. What process determines my public address? I need to exclude this also from the VPN.

You should be able to override Tor's choice for your address by using the Address option. You can use the sub-options (like nobind) for ORPort to pick a specific address to bind to without advertising it.
