They would not need an account you would need to allow them in via a firewall policy with a source and destination address with the appropriate port.  HOWEVER, it is NOT BEST PRACTICE to allow this.  The best thing to do is create the individual a locale account (AAA Local Users)  and let them VPN into the firewall only. This will allow you to control where you would allow them to go to.

It is fairly easy if you use the ASA Wizard.  If you're still having trouble let me know and I'll update again.

-HTH

Thanks Rafael. Basically there is a application they need to use on a client machine I built. So I just want them to come in and go straight to that computer. So you are saying I create a new AD account, I get that but how do I configure my Cisco. Sorry I am new with Cisco technology.

You have a 5505  - you have two free AnyConnect premium licences - setup AnyConnect and then the remote client wont need to install the IPSEC VPN client.
