Currently i need to install a Secure VPN server, i want to use OpenBSD 3.3. The issue i am having is that im not too sure what way to go about out. Especially in regards to security as it need to be really secure. Is there any guides out there that i could use or does anyone know a good way to do it. I'm new to OpenBSD i have just started to migrate to it from Linux.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Do you see ipsec manual page on your system ???
Like one here http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/man.cgi?query=ipsec&apropos=0&sektion=4&manpath=OpenBSD+3.4&arch=i386&format=html 
Should not be a big problem since you know how FreeSWAN works(ed) on Linux If you never heard/used of that, ask about basics of VPN right here
"really secure" depends on what you want, ad-hoc keying possibly will encrypt using best algorythms in the world, on the other hand key exchange using floppies and other secure means does not disable weak ciphers like DES.
Why 3.3??? - it is about to get no more updates after 3.5 is released in may 1st.
