    It has passthrough. i.e. it passes through PPTP & L2TP through NAT to a server or a client without problems. You still need a separate PPTP/L2TP server.

    Your ISP offers VPN access? For what service?
    I have read your question but I'm wondering if you know what you actually want.

    Virtual Private Networking is a service to securely access a remote network. The VPN server is operated at the endpoint of your link (your office, your home, etc) and the VPN client is operated at the remote location wanting access to the endpoint.

    VPN passthough is a facility whereby the VPN data is allowed through a router (in this case the Airport) through Network Address Translation (NAT) - the work that the router does to aggregate Internet traffic from various machines on the local network.

    The Airport offers NO VPN server or client facilities. It simply allows passthough.

    VPN via PPTP through Airport Extreme

    System Preferences --> Network --> Click on VPN connection of choice --> Advanced --> check box " Send all traffic over VPN connection " --> OK --> Apply

    Worked for me
