Windows 7: How to setup VPN tunnel for Win 7?

How to setup VPN tunnel for Win 7?

A few years ago I followed the instructions on the zunta blog to set up a vpn tunnel from my work PC (win xp) to my home PC (win xp) using openSSH and putty.

Iím not a network guy but I followed the directions and eventually got it working.
After a year things changed and I didnít need it anymore, but now I need it again.
My home Pc now runs windows 7 and the directions are 5 years out of date.
Can someone please point me to a tutorial explaining how to set up an ssh tunnel from a putty client to win 7 server?
Hopefully it will be easier with Win 7, doesn't Win 7 has something like open ssh built in?

Hi Orbital Shark

Those tutorials were was very helpful but I have q question.
I'm trying to connect from work to my home pc.
There are few open ports for me to use.
The tutorial seems by default to open port port 1723 on the server pc.
I need to change it and I don't see where that's configured ... do you know?
