You can also try Hamachi [1], it's a UDP-based VPN solution and has
NAT-to-NAT capabilities. Available in Windoze, Linux, and OS X.

The software is free for downloading but not open-sourced. Due to it's
popularity, it was recently acquired by LogMeIn, Inc. So I'm not sure if
it'll remain a freeware.
