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

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.

What make and model is the router ?

Are you running NAT on the router ?

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
