I would like to setup an IPsec tunnel between two ASA 5505 firewalls. I don't know if this is possible as the IPv6 access-lists available do NOT include "extended". I believe one needs as "extended" access list to Configure access policy for IP traffic through the system.

IPv6 access-lists choices are limited to:

configure mode commands/options:

deny Specify packets to reject

line Use this to specify line number at which ACE should be entered

permit Specify packets to forward

remark Specify a comment (remark) for the access-list after this keyword

rename rename an existing access-list

webtype Use this to configure WebVPN related policy

Before I start trying to configure and IPv6 IPsec tunnel between two ASA 5505's I would like to know if this is possible.

IPSec tunnels are sets of SAs that the security appliance establishes between peers. The SAs define the protocols and algorithms to apply to sensitive data, and also specify the keying material the peers use. IPSec SAs control the actual transmission of user traffic. SAs are unidirectional, but are generally established in pairs (inbound and outbound).
