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.
