Q1)

On my test network I have set-up an AD IPSEC policy for FTP traffic.  I have assigned the policy in AD to a test OU that contains a test FTP server.

Do I need to assign a policy to the XP clients to access this resource?  (Client respond only?) Or will an XP desktop automaticaly negotiate IPSEC.

Q2)

Following on from Q1 my understanding of the default policies is you set the Server policys on the resource you want to protect and then you have to assign the Client policy to the clients for them to access the protected resource, is this correct ?

Thanks

make sure your IPSec Policies are set in the Group Policy
Computer Config >Admin Templates > System >  Group Policy

And add Computers to OU structure
