VPN from home... advice

I am looking into how to implement a VPN from home situation with a laptop. We have the Cisco ASA series firewalls that the VPN obviously would need to be established with. Can somebody help me and guide me through what I need to implement to get this up and running? I do not have any experience with making our employees/users mobile at this point with their laptops, as we have always kept everything in-house on our LAN, what have you. I have a fairly good amount of experience/knowledge with the ASA firewalls, but am not an expert. Lots of the features, like AnyConnect I'm unfamilar with still. I can call a Cisco TAC and I may have to do that before it's all said and done, but thought I would try here first.

It is pretty straight forward - you will need to create IP Address Pool and will need to make sure that that address range is route-able   internally

below are few links to look at - you may not need all the commands

Remember with AnyConnect you will only get 'two' vpn connections unless you purchased some extra licensing! So IPSEC or PPTP/L2VPN VPN might suit you better.

Note: With modern Windows clients the IPSEC client can be 'challenging'.

would it be possible to install a certificate on the laptop and then use that certificate as the authentication for the VPN tunnel? Then there would only be 1 possible computer out there with the rights to logon remotely.
