I am setting up a test with 2 windows xp pcs and 2 Cisco ASA 5510 appliances. I have the 2 ASA devices connected togethe via ethernet and the 2 windows pcs are plugged directly into the respective ASA firewalls.

I should be able to ping the remote PC and get a reply, but it doesnt seem to be working. Followed the wizard, the only thing I can think of is that the device didnt come with a liscense for VPN.

The ASA comes with VPN functionality built in, both for remote access and site-to-site VPN capability...no special licensing required.

Have you verified that the VPN tunnel is up?  From the command line interface, you can issue the command:

sh cryp is sa

and it will say something similar to the following if the tunnel is up:

1   IKE Peer: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    Type    : user            Role    : responder
    Rekey   : no              State   : MM_ACTIVE
2   IKE Peer: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    Type    : user            Role    : responder
    Rekey   : no              State   : MM_ACTIVE

If the tunnel is up, then you should be able to ping the other client PC as long as the crypto access list is correct.  Post the output of both the following commands to further troubleshoot:

sh cryp is sa
sh cryp ip sa
