With the licensing and version of software you have, you could only run the legacy IPsec VPN client.

To run AnyConnect client-based SSL VPN, you'd need to purchase an AnyConnect Essentials license. For your platform that would be L-ASA-AC-E-5550=. (Clientless SSL VPN would be a different part number.)

I'd also suggest upgrading your system software beyond 8.2(2) the current recommended release would be 9.0(3). (9.1(5) is the latest on the 5550.)

Agree on the upgrade - as you are running a 5550 you WONT need to upgrade your RAM, as it comes with 4GB.

You will only be able to provide 2 Concurrent AnyConnect Connections for remote VPN, so as Marvin suggests if you want to head down that road (which I would recommend) purchase the licence he suggests.

If cost is a limiting factor that you are stuck with the IPSec VPN client which is slowly being 'wound down' as far as support goes.

Also note that the remote access ipsec vpn client has reached End of Support.

It is better to go for Anyconnect ssl VPN client. 

With latest versions of ASA you can also configure Anyconnect to use Ikev2 .
