If you are experiencing issues with the client not being able to connect to our server, please see below for information on possible causes:

  • You may have a firewall or an antivirus program might be blocking connection. Please try temporarily disabling these.

  • It could be due to your DNS settings. These settings are normally set automatically once the software is installed, but in rare situations these settings need to be set manually.
    There are many free DNS servers available such as Google, OpenDNS, etc.

    Google DNS : and
    OpenDNS server : and

If the problem persists, please try changing changing the location of the VPN and connect.
