Look at OpenVPN.  They are nice, and easy.. but not compatible w/  
apple's VPN client.

Not sure if there's an easy way to run the server side from a gui- i  
don't think anyone has worried about that part yet.. but it's a very  
simple thing to configure on the command line..  (well.. simple for  
VPN's, anyways.)
