a friend of mine uses openvpn. and i have used the client for windows as well. It works pretty good as long as you don't have to send any heavy traffic down the pipe. If you do i would look at some sort of hardware vpn firewall or something similar since the hardware stuff is less hassle to the end users, can generally handle higher bandwidth and is usually easier to setup.

just my 2 cent's

hamachi is limited to the amount of users on the free version.
