InitScripts VPN Extensions consists of two packages that will allow you to easily implement VPNs using PPP over SSH or PPTP. They are both integrated into the initscripts style of interface control, so a simple 'ifup vpn0' will bring up a VPN connection, and no additional SUID root applications are required. The SSH package implements both client and server functions. The PPTP package provides only the client functions.
