How to Troubleshoot VPN Issues

If you’re having trouble using a VPN, it’s usually due to one of the following common problems:
Try a different VPN server
Not many VPN users understand this, but the physical distance between your location and the VPN server can affect your connection speed.
Why? Because the further you are from the VPN server, the longer it takes for data packets to be transferred between the device and the server, resulting in slower speeds.
Ideally, you need to connect to a VPN server near you in a neighboring country.
Use a faster VPN protocol
Some protocols are easier, while others eat up a lot of resources. If you are having problems with VPN speed, try to avoid “heavy” protocols such as OpenVPN and SSTP.
Change the network port
When a device connects to and communicates with a VPN server, it uses the network port. VPN clients usually allow you to choose which port to use – at least for certain VPN protocols.
Any software can crash. If your VPN client crashes a couple of times, it’s not that critical. It might just be a system error that might never happen again.
But if you have constant VPN problems, you shouldn’t ignore this problem.
