When you configure GRE over IPsec, you'll need to allow a number of ports in your two firewalls. For more info you can refer to Cisco's doc QL-9023-01 Chapter 2 (Firewall considerations).

I'm facing a similar problem using the following topology:

LAN - Router - p2p leased line - Router - LAN - Firewall - External network

The end users on left can ping but cannot access the server on the right-hand-side LAN although the firewall is beyond their destination!
