Sophos Connect on Windows Server


I tried to install Sophos connect to a windows server 2016 to run server as a client. I installed it, I Imported the config file but when I Try to connect it says OpenVPN service is not available. I looked for the services but everything is running. My suspicious is windows server cannot run as a client. Any ideas?? Thanks you!
