OpenVPN is what you want.  It's on the SuSE cd's, and
http://openvpn.sourceforge.net/ for help setting it up.  It's pretty simple. 
The static side listens while the dynamic side connects and a secure tunnel
socket is created.  Route everything through the tunnel, and you're good to go.
 Everything sent over the tunnel is SSL encrypted.

I use for securing wireless networks.
