Dear Rich

do you know/realize that thinlinc is completely tunneled via SSH? You 
can even use a different port (not 22) for your setup.

Maybe this is a reason that noone answers on your question of tunnelling 
ssh in vpn.

For sure you are free to use any VPN solution like you did before - 
maybe there are some performance impacts. At least from my understanding 
it should work.
Give it a try and do a Testinstallation. You can download the server and 
use for free for up to 10 concurrent users. Installation is straight 

At least for us, the change from SunRay to ThinLinc was a jump from 1999 
to 2017.
