you can try OpenVPN
also maybe you can use some of your existing infrastructure in the office - are you running win server? have some router or NAS - it could be possible to use some of these devices as VPN server

If you want a client application, ShrewSoft is free and it works decently well.

For Shrew Soft, go to the Shrew Soft page

I expect the newest version would be fine.

if you are running windows server you can establish SSTP VPN. No doubts there is a lot of documentation how to set it up on the internet

Another major player is Untangle, try them here, it's not free though.

Okay, thanks - trying to find something low to no cost.  Looks like for openvpn you have to purchase seats, does anyone know the cost?
