Cant connect to VPN server

Hello, Im having problems connecting to a VPN
this is my configuration
IPv4 Settings; Automatic (VPN)
user; xxxx

authentication methods;

accept nobsdcomp
accept nodeflate
mppe required,stateless
# Lock the port
When I try to connect using that conf. it says "Requiring authentication..""Connecting.." and after that It appears as not connected
I dont know what is wrong here, On windows I can connect to the VPN without problems.
