A good idea would be to use pfsense 
It is an excellent firewall based on FreeBSD, freely available here http://www.pfsense.org/ 

Then you can choose whatever you want as a VPN solution… You would have an optimized kernel (for firewalling) a simple interface to do all related install. 
A dedicated community with lots of network guru… 

I would tend to use IPSec rather that L2TP or PPTP because It is more secure. 
A good solution would also be OpenVPN (but surely not for the Iphone). 

You would also find some pointers to configuration guide. 

Good luck.
