Hi,

many thanks for your message. Looks like some lokal DNS issues as you are not able to resolve install.pivpn.io hoste name

Code: Select all

Resolving install.pivpn.io (install.pivpn.io)... failed: Connection timed out.
If you are using a local DNS server like Pihole, you should have a look there if it is blocked
If you are using DNS Server from your ISP, you could try and change it to some public DNS Server like Cloudflare, Quad9 or Google DNS
