my favorite is hamachi. you can find it on https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi/vpn.asp
from synaptic -  http://www.shrew.net/download
this two vpn clients have version for windows and linux
but you can choose from:
PoPToP ( http://www.poptop.org/ ),
CIPE ( http://sites.inka.de/sites/bigred/devel/cipe.html )
IPSec - Openswan ( http://www.openswan.org/ ), Freeswan ( http://www.freeswan.org/ )
PPP over SSH
OpenVPN ( http://openvpn.sourceforge.net/ )

eNJOY!
