Use openvpn for six years now. It works great, except for remote login
from iPhones. Some of the phones got upgraded to the latest firmware
and can't be jailedbreaked, so no openvpn support. Then again, there
is no official support of openvpn on iPhones. The tmp
solution...random dir name and random port with limited access. Also,
apache dir protection. I totally agree corp financial data should
never be opened on a public facing port. It hurts that we have to let
iPhone users access sl that way.

However, with OpenVPN, assuming you don't run it in server-client
the ports don't actually have to be open.
That is why it can work through firewalls.

and scripts can be distributed.
I'm not saying that ssh does not have a valid place in this--it is
to do port forwarding, for example--but I'm not sold on your reasons
avoiding OpenVPN yet.
