There are several reasons that the VPN connection will fail. Here are some things to check.
L2TP protocol might be blocked in your Internet Service Provider connection. Set up the SSTP VPN connection. SSTP uses port 443 and it's not possible to be blocked by ISPs. SSTP also provides better encryption but it's little slower. SSTP is not supported by every Getflix VPN server. So please make sure to select proper server in your setup.
If the VPN connection still fails, please log a ticket with our support team for assistance.
