    I have tried multiple ways and different protocols to connect my macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and it fails to connect. for some time I could connect to BBC streaming option in channels, unfortunately even that has stopped working giving me an error saying ” Could not reach the server”. I have also checked my WAN settings on Dlink router and the options like LT2P and IKEv2 to pass over is enabled. Since mac no longer supports PPTP I don’t have an option but used LT2P or IKEv2. Although, my android phones via PPTP works seamlessly in the same network.
