use mpd5 from the ports. It is well supported and works very well both
as a client and server.

There is a sample config in the mpd.conf.example where all you need to
do is change the userid and passwd and server IP...

pptp_client:
#
# PPTP client: only outgoing calls, auto reconnect,
# ipcp-negotiated address, one-sided authentication,
# default route points on ISP's end
#

        create bundle static B1
        set iface route default
        set ipcp ranges 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0

        create link static L1 pptp
        set link action bundle B1
        set auth authname MyLogin
        set auth password MyPass
        set link max-redial 0
        set link mtu 1460
        set link keep-alive 20 75
        set pptp peer 1.2.3.4
        set pptp disable windowing
        open
