VPN connection to my office

Medium Priority

I have a D-Link 655 router (http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=DIR-655) at home and an OpenBSD firewall at the office that was set up as a VPN Server (it connects now to another office via IPSec).
What is the easiest way for me to establish a VPN from my home Windows 7 PC to the office?

Hi your easiest option would be to create a PPTP VPN to the office but of course your OpenBSD Firewall would need to have this enabled and you'll need a username and password configured on it.

This will allow you to create a VPN connection on demand and is the simplest to configure.

If you need any help I can try my best to point you in the right direction however I'm not really familiar with OpenBSD. What VPN Server is it actually running?

So, I assume that the steps are:

1. Configure OpenBSD as a VPN server.

2. Open some ports in my D-link router from home.

3. Configure Windows 7 as a VPN client (PPTP).

We can figure out 1 and 2.
Could you send me some instructions for 3 (configure my Win 7 PC as a VPN client)?
