    It depends on your needs as there's a few options to consider:

    *OpenVPN Access Server - http://openvpn.net/
    Cisco Router - LT2P over IPSEC or PPTP
    Software based - https://secure.logmein.com/UK/products/hamachi/
    SSH Port Tunnelling - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...7#post12437917

    Do you need to encrypt the data? Should your client require access to only one server or all servers on the network?

    *I'd suggest starting here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OpenVPN
    or search OpenVPN http://askubuntu.com for tutorials.

    Reply to the thread if you have any problems and I'll try to help.

    You will also need to configure firewalls to allow the VPN protocol and setup Port Forwarding or NAT.

    I use OpenVPN. I have set it up on a couple of Ubuntu servers. You can find How-Tos. You can also setup OpenVPN on your router if you can install DD-WRT on it (if it's the full size DD-WRT that supports OpenVPN). That way, you don't have to leave the server on 24/7 but your router probably is on anyway.
