ADD MORE:

Error Code: 809

Error Description: 809: The network connection between your computer and the VPN server could not be established because the remote server is not responding. This could be because one of the network devices (e.g, firewalls, NAT, routers, etc) between your computer and the remote server is not configured to allow VPN connections. Please contact your Administrator or your service provider to determine which device may be causing the problem.

Possible Cause: This error usually comes when some firewall between client and server is blocking the ports used by VPN tunnel

a> PPTP port (TCP port 1723) is blocked by a firewall/router. [Applicable to tunnel type = PPTP]

b> L2TP or IKEv2 port (UDP port 500, UDP port 4500) is blocked by a firewall/router. [Applicable to tunnel type = L2TP or IKEv2]

Possible Solution: Enable the port (as mentioned above) on firewall/router. If that is not possible, deploy SSTP based VPN tunnel on both VPN server and VPN client – that allows VPN connection across firewalls, web proxies and NAT.

You should not use PPTP for VPNs because PPTP is insecure and obsolete (see for links with information below):
- https://www.schneier.com/academic/pptp/faq.html

Instead you should use L2TP with IPSec or other VPN protocols such a OpenVPN, SoftEther (this server runs these VPNs in a single instance: SoftEther SSL VPN, L2TP/IPSec, OpenVPN, MS-SSTP, VPN over DNS and VPN over ICMP) or MS-SSTP.


This is just a security advice. Take it or leave it. The guide you used is really old and from the Ubuntu 12.04 era. A lot has changed now. Old instructions might not be longer valid on newer OSs.

Yeah thanks i just wanted to do secure connection and monitor some pcs over the internet with out using 3r party software. So here no proxying will be done. Just connect the PCs in same network. Some advice on this situations. So light weight is better as I am using internet an cant use more bandwith.

I highly recommend you not use PPTP at all, it is very insecure and can be a potential security risk. I consider it to be very obsolete when it comes to setting up a VPN, I'm sure what you want the most from a VPN connection is security and the best method to protect your data so it can't be intercepted by unauthorized parties. PPTPServer is a very bad implementation for setting up a VPN, I would just dump it from this point.

I highly recommend an OpenVPN setup, it is much more easier for you to setup and understand. Just make sure you set it up with STRONG encryption. A simple Google search can lead you to many tutorials for that purpose. Just make those tutorials aren't a few years old and actually are for your Linux distribution.

@abhe no its giving the the same issue, but thinking to change other secure VPN.

@Jake yeah you are right , thinking to use openvpn but with less heavy encryption , lets see what happend.

By the way this conversation is going nowhere I think so please close this post.
