Is it possible to create a VPN connection using a .net webservice?  We have a Cisco 5510, that I would like to connect to from a third party hosting company.

The Cisco ASA 5510 can support VPN tunnels, but that is separate from a web service.  A .net webservice would be running on a web server, behind the firewall.

I understand the difference between a VPN tunnel and a web service.  What I want to know is can I use a .net program to connect to our VPN device, then connect authenticate users in Active Directory.

IPSEC and PPTP are unavailable protocols.  They have been disabled on the ASA.

There are programming options for smart tunnels. But I couldn't confirm if your application can be made to make use of them.  The application developer would have to research whether the app can be made to establish the tunnel.
