    Hello Friend,

    Guessing from the description of problem given by you ,It seems there is problem with the settings of your VPN.I'll suggest you to tweak the VPN setting and see If it works.You can use the following settings :-

    1) GO to Home>>>Menu>>>>Settings.


    2)Tap on Wireless & networks>>>>>VPN settings.


    3)Click on Add VPN.


    4)Select the Type of VPN to add.choose ‘Add PPTP VPN’.


    5)In the next window, you'll be prompted to set VPN Name, VPN Server, Enable encryption, and DNS search domains.


    6)After providing VPN Name and other information accordingly,GO back to the VPN listings window and tap the VPN network just created to establish the connection.

    Hope It Helps!

    Thanks and visit again.

    The problem would be the VPN you have set with Android version 2.3.7 would not be recognized with the new Android Version 4.4. Try to delete the old setting and try to create the new one with all the proper details for the server name & port no. It would definitely work.
    All the best !!

    Please go to Setting--> Wireless and Networks--> VPN Settings and reconfigure your settings... The VPN didn't save your setting when you moved to the new higher firmware... The issue will be rectified if you reconfigure and get your settings correct...

    You must have missed the wirless or lan settingsin the upgrade files. Check for such files on developer site and then perform update.
