Not TCP as such, but what about using smbfs over openvpn?

Your machine is configured as a Samba server and OpenVPN end point.  
Other end connects using OpenVPN, then mounts the Samba share using  

smbfs has the shortcoming of squashing all access to the same user/ 
group, and IIRC the same permissions for everything - so it can be a  
pain sometimes. At least it's easier to set up and a little quieter  
than NFS.
