We have an office in another state with 3 users.  I want to setup a VPN for them.  What would be my easiest and cheapest way of doing this?

What hardware is available?  If you have a router or firewall you control at each end you could do a site-to-site, but for only three users, doing a remote-access VPN (ala Cisco AnyConnect) is reasonable.  
Hamachi is a free software vpn that's pretty easy to setup. If it's only for 3 users this may be the best option for you.

With the Hamchi software, would you go with managed or unmanaged?  Also, if I had to go to about 6 users needing VPN do you think Hamachi would still be a good solution?
I've only used managed. 6 users will be fine. If you get more then ten the DIY pfSense firewall is awesome!
