Cisco ASA 5500 Site to Site and Remote Access VPN Configuration Issues

I am having issues setting up a VPN to another companies network.  We currently have the Remote Access up and working for our clients.  This is tested as working.  I was sent a configuration list to connect site-to-site for the company we can not connect to.  I went through the VPN wizard in the GUI and it didn't work.  I then tried to manually setup the site-to-site in the CLI, but then it broke the remote access vpn and still wouldn't connect to  the remote company.

For the site-to-site VPN, the company has a server at that we need to access.  They gave us their remote public ip address and it is pingable.  They then told us that we need to set our local network as,  and that we will need to NAT interesting traffic to  They also said that we will need to make an IPSec ACL from to remote network  

In addition, they gave us the authentication information for phase1 and phase 2 as follows:
Authentication: Pre-Shared
Encryption: 3DES
Hash: SHA
DH: 1
Lifetime: 86400 sec

ESP encryption: 3DES
ESP authentication: SHA
Lifetime: 28800
PFS: Disabled

So it seems I have stumped the experts... Does this mean I get a refund?
