Good chance I can't help.... I'm just curious.
You want to have a VPN endpoint running in FreeBSD as a guest OS within
Qemu, on a FreeBSD host? You want it in Qemu so you don't have to
modify the host's network setup and/or install the necessary software?
In any case, take a look here (if you haven't already):
Might find something useful.
The Qemu site states "The QEMU VM behaves as if it was behind a firewall
which blocks all incoming connections." So on first glance, its sounds
as if it might not be supported. But I'd read over the docs in more
detail if I were you.
