What are the major differences between using OpenVPN and using VPN over OpenSSH?
Does adding a virtual tunnel interface to a SSH connection offer the same benefits of OpenVPN? Can PuTTY be used on Windows to use the "layer-3 IP-in-SSH tunnelling" protocol described in the article? The article states there are no Windows clients that use this protocol.

Within the LAN, I'm used to logging into the server from my laptop via SSH. Outside the LAN, however, I would like to connect to my server and have my traffic be encrypted.
