After I upgraded the VPN just attempts to connect without connecting. I'm on 10.14. It stopped working for me. What do I do? I recently installed the updated version of the VPN software. When I did, it just spins trying to connect. I've restarted the computer and application multiple times without any success. What are the next steps?
