How can I set a VPN up?

I tried PPTP but it wouldn't work - my iPod touch said it couldn't connect to my Raspberry Pi.

What's the easiest way of setting a VPN up?

I have a Model B rev 2 Pi running Raspbian. It's running as DMZ host, so port forwarding isn't a problem.

You need a Server and Client VNC solution.

On Apple iOS use VNC Viewer http://www.realvnc.com/products/ios/

If you have a fully updated Raspbian "Wheezy" Linux installed then you need the VNC Server installed, Tight VNC Server is available from the repository.

Er... VPN, not VNC server.

That's for connecting to already existing VPNs. I want to create a VPN myself and connect to it.

I always use this as a guide:

*sigh* Do you know the difference between VPN and VNC?

Without any error during installation? And are you sure it isn't somewhere else or hidden?
