This was the way I went. I started using pptpd but after a while (i said while 
but could have been an upgrade, a new port install, etc...), somehow, it 
started to randomly drop the connections, no matter what form of keep-alive I 
used. I spent several weeks trying to find out why to no avail.

I finally gave up and switched to mpd5. I solved my problem and it has been 
rock solid ever since.
