I am a newbiew when it comes to this Routing stuff, so please bare with me.

We got a brand new Cisco ASA 5510.  Im trying to setup VPN.  I've tried the online help from Cisco, and i've tried doing it myself.  I've used the wizards, i just dont know what options i need to select or add, or other options i need to select.  If someone can come forward and provide me with guidance, that would be great.  Thanks in advance.

File attached is what i used, and other material i found laying around.

That PDF seems to be outdated. It looks like a really old version of the ASDM software.

It really depends on what kind of VPN your trying to deploy, and what kind of authentication you want to use.

Generally (from memory), when your deploying a client access VPN via the ASDM, the only information that you absolutely require will be the Group Name (can be anything), the Shared Secret (this should be nice and secure, kind of like a password thats given to all of your users), and what authentication method you wish to use (which by default, I think is the Internal AAA but you can bind this to your AD or any other LDAP database which is a bit complicated)

Where abouts in the wizard are you having difficulty with? Let's run through it together and I might be able to be a little bit more of a help.

If you just got it Brand new then CISCO will do the setup for you and with you.  Call them.

Both great Comments!

Im sure i've got to allow something somewhere else on the ASA.  I just dont know where, or what.  I think the trouble is, the security and the way im trying to set it up, as you mentioned, the AAA 2DES etc, questions, is i have no idea.  How would you guide me through the process?  Thanks.

Yes anytime I setup a new unit Cisco was available for the setup, they are trying to show why an agreement is a good thing.  Just tell them it is an initial setup and you should have no problems.

I wanted to post a final conclusion.  This is what bothers me, when they find a solution, they never spread the word, to help the user.
Cisco will help you over the phone completly, as you sit and watch what they do.
You cannot use L2TP, unless you are on version 7.2.4 or higher, as i was using 7.0.?.  Or i would have had this configured on the first try. Cisco is a great help, so i would recomemded given them a call, if you are stumped.  Thanks.
