Setting up a VPN

I have installed a number of IP cameras in a remote site and I want to access these cameras from the Main Site. I have static IPs on both sides, I would like to set up a VPN with these to connect the LAN at the remote site and bring it on the LAN of the Main Site. In the main site I have an Cisco ASA 5510. In the remote site I have a normal router which can connect to an L2TP VPN. Is this enough to establish a site to site VPN or I need a VPN router in the remote site also? Should I use the remote access VPN or the Site to Site VPN?

Thanks

You should use the site to site VPN option.  ASA can do L2TP tunnels if that is all your router can do.

I have an ASA 5510 with asa v8.2(1) and asdm v6.3(5). When I try the configuration attached the browsing on LAN (inside) halt. On the other site I have a simple Tenda router and will connect site to site VPN using L2TP, is that possible? and it is disconnecting as soon as I have finished the VPN configuration?

In the remote network, put the remote subnet, by putting "any" all traffic will try to go across the tunnel

I think you will find it much easier to use hardware VPN routers designed for the job. Cisco RV042G VPN routers work very well and have site-to-site (and client-to-site) VPN capabilities. I recommend this to you.
