I've used OpenVPN for this, in several different organizations, with 
good success.  It can be a little complicated to set up correctly (e.g., 
for having access to the machines on your network), but it's not that 
awful to do (and there's good help to be found for this online), and 
also really doesn't require much of any hand-holding once it's set up.

You can feel free to email me offlist if you have specific questions.
