We have just received 2 Cisco ASA 5505s to connect a remote office to the main office. There are about 10 computers / thin-clients at the remote office that need to be an 'extention' of the network at the main office. All internal machines at both ends are in the 192.168.1.x address range. What would be the best setup? One VPN tunnel from remote site to main (all machines are behind only a switch with static IPs before touching the 5505s at both sites) or a 'site-to-site' tunnel' between both 5505s? Pros vs. Cons of each scenario? One major concern of having them on the same network is sending print jobs between the locations through terminal services. The remote branch will be pulling remote RDP sessions from the main office but printing will be sent back to the remote office via SMB.

You need to have 2 different IP ranges, like 192.168.122.0 and 192.168.123.0

Site-site tunnel would be the simplest and best method of connecting them together.
