We have set up IPSEC on both a workstation and a server so that we can
encrypt files being passed between the two.

We also have Sygate as a firewall.

After IPSEC was installed, if we do a simple ping test between the
workstation and server, we get 'Negotiating IP Security' instead of replies
unless we turn Sygate off.

In Sygate I have tried to open ports IP 50, UDP 500, IP 51, UPD 4500, UDP 88
and tcp 88 which is what different documentation says to do, but nothing
works, I still get 'Negotiating IP Security' when trying to do a simple ping
test.

Any suggestions?
