ssh tunneling is a great lightweight vpn stand-in. You do need three things: an account on a externally accessible machine that is on the same internal network as the machine you're tunneling to, the IP address of the machine you're tunneling, and knowledge of what port(s) you need to forward. The syntax is: ssh <your account>@<externally accessible machine> -L <local port>:<internal target host>:<port to forward>
