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
