ASA 5505 Site to Site VPN

HI There;
I'm trying to configure a site to site VPN connection with one of our branch offices, but it is not working.
I'm creating the connection using the ASDM VPN wizard, supplying the remote site LAN address and the peer public address, making sure that all the rest of the config are match.
One thing that i'm not sure and that might be the problem, is that the remote site have their ASA 5505 behind their ISP modem, which assignes the ASA outside interface an ip of 192.168.2.10, meaning the ASA is already NATed itself. Can this be the problem?

ASA-LAN-192.168.50.1 --->ASA-WAN-192.168.2.10---->ISP-MODEM-67.99.xx.xx---->MY-ASA-WAN-209.115.xx.x---->MY-ASA-LAN-192.168.168.xx

Sorry if i'm missing any info here.

That is definately your problem right there.  You can try getting the public IP address of the other ASA behind the ISP modem (the modem's IP, set the VPN to recognize and identifier, and then enable keep alives. That shoudl do it

Sorry.  I got ahead of myself. Admittedly, it's not the easiest thing to explain Basically the ASA has a static IP and the remote device has a dynamic IP.
You configure a normal site-to-site tunnel on the remote end, but on the ASA side configure a dynamic tunnel to accept the connection from the remote device.
This scenario will work, the only restriction is the tunnel will only be able to initiate from the remote end device (in the example above an IOS router).

This may shed some light on it using the CLI

Here's a decent EE article

You are basically going to use the public IP of the cable modem for the connection IP
