Creating VPN to office without a static IP

I have a client who wants to be able to vpn to his NAS at the office from home.  He is a one man show so didn't spend or need a lot of bandwidth and has a basic dsl package without a static IP.  Are there any suggestions for software to help develop a vpn connection between home and the office without having the purchase a static ip from his ISP?

You could use a Dynamic DNS hostname to connect to?
Should work ok for PPTP VPN.

For the vpn have a look at hamachie
https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi/vpn.asp?lang=en

if you want a free option, open source, you can try

tinv http://www.tinc-vpn.org/
Wipen http://wippien.com/ 
http://openvpn.net/.

With some of the solutions mentioned above, such as hamachie and wipen, there is no need to have a static ip.
To avoid paying for a static ip  you can use something like no-ip.org with their update client to have free dns record that gets updated when your IP address changes.

Personally I would use a combination of openvpn, http://openvpn.net and no-ip.org
