This occurs when the remote connection is unable to establish due to the incorrect name of the remote access server, making your DNS unresponsive.

Possible Cause: Normally, error code 868 occurs when you are using an incorrect server name or a firewall that’s blocking the server.

Possible Solutions:

Identify whether you’re using the correct server address. Correct server addresses are available on this page: https://support.purevpn.com/vpn-servers

Change DNS of your system: http://support.purevpn.com/how-to-activate-google-dns-on-windows

In an event where the problem continues, you can try connecting your VPN by entering the IP address instead of entering the hostname.
