Secure server IPSec policy between 2 XP machines

I have set up an IPSec policy that requires traffic from one PC (A) to another (B) use a secure connection (filter set to require security, negotiate security). This policy is applied to PC B.
The result is that no trafiic at all appears to pass between PC's A & B. I am unable to connect to a share on PC B from PC A, and when a ping is attempted I see 'Negotiaiting IP Security' as the 4 ping responses.
I need to get an understanding of how IPSec works before moving on to a larger project, so if anyone can explain why the two XP PC's cannot negotiate security I'd appreciate it.
Also, if you have tips on tools to use to troubleshoot IPSec I'd appreciate it (I'm using the IPSec monitor mmc).

Hi!

You have to enable IPsec policy on PC A also. Assign Client (respond only) to PC A to enable communications with PC B. Because you have used Secure Server (require security) PC B will only communicate with computers which can use IPSec.

Thanks, I'll try that. I was wondering that myself, but documentation seems to imply that if a device is IPSec-able it would work, which would apply in this case.
