Start with basic network troubleshooting. Check IP address, verify VPN server has opened ports TCP 1723 and GRE, verify server has VPN account set up. Can you ping this IP address from terminal?


If UFW firewall is enabled, look at /var/log/ufw.log with text editor. Go to bottom of file and see if vpn ip address is being blocked. If so, add rule to ufw allowing in from that ip address.
