I have a cisco firwall ASA 5510.
I have a user that needs to remote from home to the office.
In order to achieve that, do I need to copy a file from the firewall to a flash drive then for him to copy it to his computer at home?
Or do I need first to install a VPN software in the ASA firewall and create a file for the user?

Never done that. How does it work?

Thanks

What do you mean "copy a file"? You can use Cisco VPN Client (install software), also you can use WebVPN (clientless technology).

Users must install Cisco VPN Client. It can be downloaded from a cisco.com site, restricted access. Only for service agreements. Or you can search it in internet.
