Downloads are from sourceforge, links on the site
Plenty of HOWTOs, but expect a learning curve..

Post any setup/help questions in the Networking Forum..

I am not a PPTP-fan, it has some vulnerabilities (...yes, it is from Micro$oft).

I would suggest OpenVPN, this is stable and can be very secure.

The M$ version will sure have some bugs..
but using the linux version of the server will work well..

As it's built-in to M$ clients, it's a quick solution.
VPN solutions require massive massaging to get mobile clients to work.
(Key exchanges, certificates ($$), auth services, firewall mods etc.)
