Yes, PPTP could do this. Search on google for this. However, I would
prefer OpenVPN over PPTP because of its stronger encryption, usage of
certificates and better handling of natted connections. IPSec on
m0n0wall lecks some really needed features like NAT-T or filtering
interfaces which are often needed in road warrior scenarios.
