Arrow How do I setup a VPN Server

I want to setup a Fedora Core VPN server for people on the Internet to easily connect to for the purpose of playing LAN games over a VPN.

I know if you setup a normal pptp VPN with Windows it does not forward the required network broadcasts for some games.

Example : You create(host) a multiplayer game , but no one on the VPN can see the game you created.

I've got this right with a program called Hamachi , but would like to do it in a more effective way and separate form the Hamachi network.

How would I do this ?

I've Installed Poptop from an rpm package before and used webmin , but never got it to work. I have no idea what all the setting should be just to get it to work in a very basic environment.
