If you want PPTP because of Windows clients, you need some kernel patches and 
some firewall patches. You can use a CentOS spinoff like ClarkConnect for this 
as it already has the patches, and a decent web config to set things up. If 
you want something more secure, use OpenVPN, but you will have to set each 
client up manually.

You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
