The open source tinc-vpn which is like Hamachi.  Could use a tun / tap
layer with 5.0.0.0/8 addresses.
Would never recommend PPTP because of the security issues and the
clients can't have the same subnet as the corporate lan for it to work
well.  Even if you do not need encryption, but just authentication,
pptp could be blown wide open.
