Connecting Arduino Based PLC (Controllino) to Blynk

I am trying to connect my Arduino based Controllino Maxi Automation Industrial PLC to the Blynk app, but I am getting this message in the Serial Monitor:

[486767] Connecting to blynk-cloud.com:80

There is no actual connection between them. This is my first time trying this, can anyone assist me?
The Controllino has an Ethernet Port which utilizes a Ethernet WIZnet Chip W5100. The code i used is from the example sketch.

 *************************************************************
  This example shows how to use Arduino Ethernet shield (W5100)
  to connect your project to Blynk.

  NOTE: Pins 10, 11, 12 and 13 are reserved for Ethernet module.
        DON'T use them in your sketch directly!

  WARNING: If you have an SD card, you may need to disable it
        by setting pin 4 to HIGH. Read more here:
        https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoEthernetShield

  Feel free to apply it to any other example. It's simple!

Where are your network credentials?

Good day, it just turns out because I was using the LAN network where I work, the firewall was restricting the communication. I connected to an alternate LAN connection that was not on the network and it worked fine.
