VPN Connection for Windows

Windows 7 has a built-in VPN client tool. Are there any VPN servers on Linux that support this protocol?

Please provide me with names, not mere links/google search results which I could do myself.

The most "universal" VPN protocol is L2TP/IPSec. The W7 VPN client can be set with 4 different protocols and one of this is L2TP/IPSec (which is fully compliant).
To answer your question: quite any Linux VPN server that supports L2TP/IPSec will work.
Why don't you use OPEN VPN server?http://babyraj.com/openvpn-open-source-vpn-solution/
QlemoBatchelor and DeveloperCommented:
Many hardware routers work with a Linux flavour, most with dd-WRT. Those can terminate PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, and IPSec with IKEv1 (but the latter is not supported by W7). More recent releases might allow for IPSec with IKEv2, which is available with W7.

As suggested by sumeshbnr, OpenVPN is commonly used with Linux, and works great on Windows. You certainly will find an OpenVPN package for almost any Linux you can think of.
