CRUD API connectiing issues

Im having no problem with answering the questions or understanding the material, but the spawned ip address gives me nothing back, i pinged it and got nothing back. I have been having this problem for about 3 days. I thought about connecting through openvpn, but it dosnt show the option too which makes me think connceting is not required.

Anyways my main questions is, is anyone else having issues having the spawned IP talking back?
