VPN site to site explanation needed

Hopefully someone can help me.  I am doing some research on getting a remote
site connected to a main site.  I see lots of site to site VPN solutions out
there but I can't find the answer to the following basic question:
Once there is a successful site to site tunnel between the remote
firewall/router and the main firewall/router with IPSec are all clients on
the remote site automatically sending all their network traffic through the
tunnel?  Or do the clients on the remote site still need to initiate a
connection first with some kind of VPN client?

Thanks.

If both of the firewall/routers has a route via its peer to the
network behind the peer, the clients need no configuration.
