I have looked through so many guides online and nothing seemes to be helping me out.

Here is my log file

Set SELinux to permisive and test vpn connection if it work, then you need to debug SELinux to set the proper rule to work with your vpn settings. I had a similar problem and found out that SELinux was blocking my vpn connection because the folder that contains my certs did not had the right permits I was using OpenVPN.

I think this is due to firewall settings, not SELinux. See this post for a solution. You could experiment and first disable the firewall for a short test and then apply the firewall configuration changes and the kernel modules changes (if necessary).
