I'm not currently in UK and I need to login to my free UK based Spotify account on Fedora 25, the country I'm in isn't supported by Spotify.

I tried many free PPTP UK VPN services, they work on other distros but not on Fedora. I don't want to buy paid VPN because all I need is 1 min login authentication, after that I won't use a VPN.

I noticed that SELinux is behind all my troubles, I forgot what the error message was and it's not showing currently.

On ask fedora they said you should use a cert, but PPTP does not provide a cert.

I think this is a firewall problem. This solution works for me. Note that it needed both a firewall reconfiguration and some additional kernel modules.
