mpls network / asa 5510 / ipsec

Hi folks
I have an mpls circuit with out internet access.  I also have an ASA sitting behind the mpls router.

What do I need to do to in order to establish an IPSEC tunnel to another vendor?

Thanks,

If all you are looking for is a basic site to site setup, then Cisco has the HOWTO right here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6120/products_configuration_example09186a0080950890.shtml

If the MPLS does not have Internet access then there is not much point in the ASA being there.

Is the other vendor accessible via the same private non-Internet MPLS Service?

That's correct.  It would also be good if they had the same ASA on their end to simplify the IPSec setup,..although it may still be doable even if you mix brands.

its a same model ASA sitting 5 feet from the one in question.

If you do that then to keep the routing scheme synchronous the MPLS Router or some other LAN Router would be the Default Gateway for the LAN and likewise be the central routing "decision maker" for the LAN,...then it would only need  a Static Route on it that told it to use your ASA as he gateway to the other vendor's system.
