How to configure FreeLAN?

I want to setup FreeLAN as a primary means of accessing a remote server, whcih will be at a client's office. The client has DSL, so the IP address will change periodically.

What I want is this:
1. Setup FreeLAN to connect back to an intermediate VPN server here at my office so that I can always get to the server via this VPN.
2. As a backup, I'll setup no-ip so I can still get to the server if the VPN is down.

I understand how VPN works. But, the documentation (and or sample configs) are a little thin for FreeLAN. I know you can do what I want, but I just don't know how.

Additionally, I do NOT want FreeLAN on the remote server to route all traffic to me. I only want traffic that runs on SSH to run over the VPN. This last bit I am sure we can accomplish with routes...

Does anyone know how to do this?

Wow.  You're not kidding about the configuration instructions being thin....

The instructions on the website indicate that to obtain help you mail the users' mailing list.

The question you should ask is this:

Can anyone provide a sample configuration for setting up a persistent remote access VPN using split tunneling?

I ultimately ended up using tinc-vpn, and did a write-up here:

FreeLAN was ultimately a bust. I eventually found tinc-vpn, which not only works but is understandable.
