Your pfSense firewall has OpenVPN built into it already, and you can point pfSense authentication back to your samba AD. We support over 400 users in this model. The configuration file for OpenVPN is common to all users, and they authenticate with their AD credentials.

Once the users connect they proceed as normal. The users 'home' network address should be different to the office network address range.
