We've used openvpn at work.  I haven't worked with setting up clients, only
co-workers, who are technical.  However, I think that it's fairly easy for
Windows users as well--I believe there is one central cert, then a key for
the individual, then a configuration file.  (I'm looking at what I have to
connect to our VPN.
