[SOLVED] VPN failed to start

I created the VPN under network settings without a problem but if I click to start it, it says 'failed because the VPN service failed to start'. It worked fine under Linux Mint Cinnamon Main Edition.

I'm running LMDE Cinnamon 64-bit.

CPU[-Quad core Intel Core i7-3770 (-HT-MCP-) clocked at 1600.000 Mhz-] Kernel[-3.2.0-4-amd64 x86_64-] Up[-5:40-] Mem[-3856.1/5929.5MB-] HDD[-2600.5GB(32.3% used)-] Procs[-212-] Client[-Shell-] inxi[-1.4.23-]

Anyone have any idea as to how to go about solving it?

Seems my VPN provider changed the URL and I needed to put the address in without any http:// in the front. With that corrected, and MPPE activated, it connected fine. The error message was a bit cryptic though which is why i thought there was a problem with the Mint VPN service itself.
