I am some sort of VPN hobbist. I sometimes use vpns professionally, but
generally i set them up for friends who are travelling and like a secure
connection. i personally prefer openvpn, easy to setup, very good ssl
security etc. Packt pub. has a book on it which is quite decent read.
Even their online tuts are good enough. If you want to do something
limited I find even ssh tunnelling sufficent for many purposes.
