3DES-SHA1 would be the most secure.

I don't believe you can use aes from VPN clients to Firebox,it is only supported between Fireboxes running Fireware.

To be honest, the more important thing when configuring your VPN is to limit the access granted to your VPN users and don;t use the ANY rule unnecessarily.
