How to enable Betternet VPN

I have AVG internet protection version 17.9.3040
It just updated and now I am unable to use my betternet vpn (I have a paid subscription.
I found instructions for an older version internet protection, but my dashboard is different from that one and I cannot locate the place to allow it.

Please check if AVG firewall is configured with below recommended settings or not.

Open AVG Internet Security->Menu->Settings->Components->Firewall->Customize->Network Profile and change it to Private.
Open AVG Internet Security->Menu->Settings->Components->Firewall->Customize->Policies->System Rules and set all rules to "Enabled".

Make sure the above settings are applied and let us know if the issue persist.
