Troubleshooting

Possible causes for the VPN connection to fail:

  • The Internet-connection is not available, check if you can browse the Internet.
  • The VPN connection was not properly configured, verify all configuration parameters.
  • The Science login name and password combination is not valid, try to login on dhz.science.ru.nl to verify.
  • The VPN server is tempoprarily unavailable, ask C&CZ.
  • Your Internet provider does not allow GRE traffic (unlikely).
  • Your broadband router does not support GRE traffic (unlikely).
