Failing to connect to windows-based VPN (PPTP/L2TP)

Trying to set up VPN connection to windows-based VPN (PPTP/L2TP). I have managed to set it up on ubuntu but failing to set it up after switching to EndeavourOS. The system was fully updated and rebooted prior to this.

Here are the relevant logs:

The error seems similar so maybe there is something wrong with my setup?

Figured out, not sure what had helped but: reinstall relevant packages, reboot, enable silent in config, enable UDP encapsulation, enable ikev1.
