PPTP Connection Error

Hi, I have using a VPN since 2017 but when I configured a PPTP connection, it can’t connect and shows a message that "Firewall block your connection". I am using McAfee in my system. What the actual issue I don’t know?

Hi @rootwilliamson 


Normally PPTP vpn connecting problem might be caused by incorrect date and time, please check your system date & time. Also please let us know what your windows version and McAfee version installed in your PC.

Re: PPTP Connection Error

Time and Date is updated. On other side I am using Windows 10 and McAfee version 1803.
