Question Fileserver with access by VPN

Hi all,

I`m looking for solution for fileserver which could be accessed by VPN from Windows. Is it possible to configure something like this ? If yes, what kind of software should I use ? VSFTPD, Samba ??

If somebody could help me would be great.

Scenario looks like this:

Fileserver (CentOS) -------- VPN ------------> Windows XP (home)
|-------- VPN ------------> Windows XP (office)

Any suggestions ?

OpenVPN would work nicely for this. Plenty of documentation on their site, as well as examples. Versions for Linux and Windows exist.
