I have a remote teleworker that has a vpn tunnel between their ASA and my ASA.  Every time the teleworker's IP address changes on her home network, we have to re-establish the VPN.  Is there any way I can automate this?  I do not want to configure the VPN everytime she gets a new public IP address.

Thanks!
B.

Ask her to call her ISP and request a static IP. It'll either be free or about $5 extra a month.

Is there not a way to make it a "dynamic" vpn?  She does not have a commercial ISP, therefore I do not think they will give here a business class address.

You don't need to be a business to get a static IP, my ISP at home is consumer-level and I've got a static.

And yes you can make the VPN dynamic, do you know your way around the ASA's command line interface?
Can you post both the ASA's configs?
(Remember to take out username+passwords.)

As far I understand you have site to site vpn at this moment and you need to have simply remote vpn access. Could you please send your Cisco device details (model, IOS, config). Additionaly please find below tutorial for IPSec configuration http://www.petenetlive.com/Tech/Firewalls/Cisco/c2svpnRADIUS.htm

Simple to setup the ASA at Corp as a EZVPN server and the home ASA as EZVPN remote.
Use the wizard. Best to upgrade to 8.0(4) first on both ends.
Attached is a configuration guide
