Can someone please provide instructions on how to enable IP SEC between two servers in the same segment. I need all IP and TCP traffic to be on IPSEC. Thanks.

    Forgot to mention that I enabled IPSEC by going in local security policy and enabling the "Request Security" option. I did that on both servers and I was able to ping between the two, but all other communications failed. I wasn't able to connect between the two computers by UNC or http. Both run IIS.

    Accepted Solution

    Under local security settings, Create a new IPSEC policy.

    Set up a rule with a filter list of the other server.
