In ver 1.21 ESP was added automatically. For some reason, this step
was not performed automatically when I enabled IPSEC...when it should
have...atleast according to the doc's.

If however your asking why..."in general" do you have to allow ESP,
this is needed to allow IPSEC connections to work. It's my
understanding that this is the case with most router/firewalls. By
default ESP is not configured.
