Mikrotik Rb2011 VPN Not Passing Traffic

I have two RB2011 that I am trying to connect with a site to site VPN.  I have done this before successfully but for some reason I'm missing or forgetting something.

I have the Police,Peer and Proposal setup the same on each router but reversed.  

I had originally set this up in a lab environment and it was working.  So I backed up and restored the configuration to a new router and changed a few parameters such as LAN/WAN addresses and updated the VPN settings.

The VPN appears to be connected but I can not ping across the VPN.

The only thing unique about this setup than other installations I have done is I have two subnets on one of the routers and a firewall rule allowing traffic across the two subnets except it blocks one particular IP.  I tried disabling that rule also and no luck.

Both Routers are on 6.21.1 software.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Does the device you are trying to ping have a software firewall blocking pings? Also make sure you have the return routes setup in the other router or the ping can't get back to you.

I ended up doing a factory reset on the router and reprogrammed it from scratch and everything started working correctly.
