Just to throw something else into the mix.
I've used vtun in the ports (net/vtun) with great success. It's fairly easy
to set up and works like a charm.
You can configure it to use any port you want, whatever's available.
It's what I would use if I were in your situation, so I thought I'd recommend it.
