I will admin that I have never heard of Win 7 embedded server.   Or 
actually Win 7 embedded.     But I presume it is a preconfigured win 7 
pro system with some file sharing and that you don't have sufficient 
access to config ipsec?

What are you trying to do ?  Are you trying to protect communications 
between two devices on the same LAN  or over the internet?  VPN's are 
typically using IPsec anyway, although in a tunnel.
