	I've run an OpenVPN tunnel on a satellite link for over 2 years
now. Its a backup for a wireless broadband link. Its dog slow, but it
works. I run it primarily because the satellite provider doesn't allow
incoming connections, and DNS requests get mangled. With the OpenVPN
link back to our datacenter, I know I'm getting "clean Internet".
