I'm easy. If they feel so inclined then I would greatly appreciate the help. I don't have a lot of time to dedicate to these sorts of projects. It's more of a "need to have" sort of thing.... ;)

bytheway, adding outbound pptp, would it also create an interface so we selectively route out it using firewall rules etc, similar to how we do for openvpn client?

Hi xbipin,

Well, yes. The mpd daemon creates a virtual device to act as the tunnel endpoint, just the same as pppd+xl2tpd/pptpd do under Linux. so you could certainly use pf to create routes/rules for the vpn tunnel. However, mpd also gives you the option to configure a route to the remote network when the tunnel is established, so, if you're like me and you own the networks at each end of the tunnel, it simplifies things a little. But you don't have to use that option if you don't want to.
