ESXi Site to Site VPN

We have a site to site IPSEC vpn up and running and communicate to each security appliance, the gateways and VLANs We have connected laptops and other devices and can traverse back and forth.  However, Site A has a vcenter server and we are trying to add two hosts on Site B to the site a vcenter.  I can ping the hosts from site A, and ping B and vice versa. However, I cannot get access from site A to the ESXi Host on site B.  Is there a TCP/UDP necessary to connect to the host?

I checked and the ports are open. Each site has a 150MB ISP connection.  I tested RDP from one vm from site A to B and B to A and RDP sessions are fine. WHen trying to access an esxi host from web or client, it just times out.  Not sure if its just a bandwidth issue or something else.

It was on the actual VPN appliance side with a routing issue.
