If you want to choose ssl based vpn, use the openvpn server on the centos box and the openvpn client on windows box

not with openvpn. you would have to download and install the windows openvpn client. if i remember correctly, the built in windows vpn client is a pptp unencrypted connection. openvpn works over ssl using udp protocol.

What is your expectation? install VPN server on your linux? Then
for pptp

OR
for IPsec
http://www.openswan.org/
OR
for SSL/TLS
As centosboy said use openvpn
