If I understand you well, you have several options:

- install mpd (net/mpd in the ports) on the FreeBSD machine acting as a PPTP
server and then configure a PPTP connection to the security gateway on the
windows clients; mpd also supports DES encryption

- install one of the following VPN servers on the FreeBSD machine:
  * openvpn (security/openvpn), see http://openvpn.sourceforge.net/
  * vpnd (security/vpnd), see http://sunsite.dk/vpnd/ 
  * tinc (security/tinc), see http://tinc.nl.linux.org/

I have only tried the first option to connect a Windows 95 box, via an
MPPE-encrypted tunnel over the Internet, to a PPTP FreeBSD server, which in
turn is the firewall/gateway of the office LAN.
