There are few types of VPN you can choose to do the job for you.

IPSEC - very secure but may be problematic for remote users (client app needed)

SSL - very secure and usually easy to set up for remote users (SSL widely used in www) (client app needed)

PPTP - less secure than both of the above, oldest. Very low CPU usage of firewall (less consuming crypting algorithm so many remote users) (almost every flavour of linux/unix/mac/windows has pptp client build in)

Of coures if you need to set up Site to Site VPN not client you don't have as many options.

Just for clarification

By means of problematic to set up i meant potential troubles with NAT on remote users side.

SSL seems best choice
