In addition to the posts about FreeSWAN, take at look at these, which are
all available in Debian (woody or sid):
vtun, tunnelv, cipe, vpnd, tinc, and maybe secvpn
IPsec (i.e. FreeSWAN) is probably the best choice overall since it
promises to interoperate with most anything that runs IPsec, but these
other packages can help you get a secure tunnel up in a hurry.
