I want to second this suggestion. Another strong advantage of OpenVPN is that
it is SSL based. This means it can listen on port TCP/443, which means your
odds of actually connecting to it at very good as compared to IPsec and other
solutions, which often find themselves getting filtered, not NATed well, etc.
