I have recently finished configuring my Cisco ASA 5510 for remote VPN access. How do I create access rules (ACL's) just to the incoming VPN connections?

You probably just have to catch them by port, then assign it to your WAN interface.

access-list 110 deny tcp X.X.X.X y.y.y.y x.x.x.x Y.Y.Y.Y eq 1723


Give them their own subnet, and ACL that on your Vlan1 interface.

My apologies but that was a bit over my head. I am acustomed to using the ASDM GUI. Command line is a challenge for me. Can you be a bit more specific?

Abit unclear to me, are you trying to restrict traffic inside VPN tunnel or ACL to be pushed to the client
as encryption domain ?
Or in other words - what are you trying to achieve ?

BTW if you mean restrict traffic inside VPN tunnel ( permit/deny access by IPs) here is the link
that can help (no GUI sorry) :
