@bdodroid There could be a couple reasons. From time to time Windscribe servers experience problems and it is impossible to connect to the servers. Also check your firewall rules to make sure that VPN traffic is being permitted over the specified protocol and port. If it is not a configuration error on your end, I would say wait a while and try connecting again. All else fails, you can send your debug log to Windscribe and open a support ticket (

Additionally, take a look at your log by using `windscribe viewlog` to identify where it may be failing.

Everything runs fine until I try to connect, then I get a "Failed to connect" message and it exits. Any ideas what could be stopping the connection?

It gets my account info just fine.

My Linux version: Linux 4.12.4-1-ARCH x86_64 GNU/Linux

@f4bio Thanks for letting me know, I forgot to add this when I was refactoring the PKGBUILD. Everything should work now.

you have to create `/etc/windscribe` directory somewhere in your the PKGBUILD too, otherwise it won't start (`IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/etc/windscribe/wssession'`)
