We have windows xp clients that run a FAT client application that talks to
an oracle database running on a UNIX server. We have been mandated to do
end-to-end data encryption between the Windows xp clients and the UNIX
server. Using VPN is not an option. So I was thinking about implementing
IPSEC.
Does anyone know if IPSEC is the right encryption method in this case, given
that the clients are Windows XP and the server is running Sun Solaris OS?
Will there be compatibility issues using IPSEC between these two different
platforms?

The vendor that developed the application running on the Windows XP client
says there application does not and will not do encryption. Are their any
other known solutions out there that can do end-to-end encryption between
these two platforms other than VPN or redesigning the client application?
