Sorry for a silly quesiton but I've been trying to look this up with no luck. The ASA 5505 does that initate the VPN tunnel or is it just a pass through that allows individual machines with VPN clients to connect to a concentrator?

It can do either (depending upon how it is configured)

The ASA can be a VPN edge Router (with a tunnel back home) or a firewall (with VPN pass-through) or... be both!

May I bother you for one more thing, can you please point me in the right direction I've never set one up before so I would like to set this up as an edge router so all someone has to do is plug there pc into it and they will be able to connect to the office.
