I would like to be able to administer the ASA 5505 from another site, which is linked via a site to site Ipsec LAN.

How do I enable this feature?

From my understand of the question, you already have an IPsec VPN tunnel between the sites? In that case you would only need to enable ASDM on the device and you could get there using the LAN IP of the ASA.

If you need to manage the device using the inside ip address but you are behind a VPN you should use this command:

management-access inside

After that you are going to be able to launch the ASDM through the tunnel.
