Cisco ASA 5505 Limitations

Hi Experts
I have setup my site Firewall which is a 5505 to do Remote access VPN (IPSEC)
i want to use the Cisco client to connect to the network behind this device.
I have used the same setup as my 5510's on other sites around the world.
I am not thinking reading that the 5505 is not as straight forward just as it was not straght forward setting it up because of the VLANS etc and the way it works

Can i use a 550 for my staff to access the network from the Cisco VPN client

You can get an exact listing of features on the 5505 and how it compares to other models here:

The most important detail is the Max vlan settings.    IF you have the 5505 sec plus lic, then you get 20 Vlans with trunking.    Standard 5505 does 3 VLans without trunking.

If you mean can you use the 5505 then yes :)

sorry yes 5505 i am receiving an error connecting it's the same config with IP changes as what i have done on the 5510 series ASA.
Can you take a look at my config to determine why it's not working
