We can recommend OpenVPN too.

The "easiest" way to connect to a Samba by VPN in the majority of scenarios 
should be the OpenVPN TAP mode (layer 2) - but security may more difficult to 
handle a bit.

-> see i.e.:

for some basics about this...

To "solve" name resolution questions i knew manies who are using a DNS with 
their samba / OpenVPN setup. Not shure how far samba / windows network 
browsing is working today over tap correctly (did not tried that in the past 
again) but may be there are more clever solutions possible today.
