PPP over SSH is evil. PPTP is pretty easy to set up (and Windows boxes
can do it), but doesn't do encryption on Linux, and the encryption on
Windows is trivially cracked. I've also found PPTP tunnels to be a bit

The best VPN solution that I've found is OpenVPN. It's fairly easy to
set up, and uses TLS and X.509 certificates for connection security. The
tunnels are also rock-solid.

See http://openvpn.sourceforge.net/ for more information.
