How to pass a certificate to a web service from a pocket PC ?

From a PocketPC application (written in VB.NET using the compact framework 2.0),
I'm trying to get access to a secure web service but I'm currently uanble to send
a certificate to that web service.

I found some utilities to install a certificate into the PocketPC.
Then to be able to get access to that certificate, I used a small dll from InTheHand
that gives me access to the certificates collection.

But, in the compact framework (2.0) I found no way to send a certificate to the web service.
Normally, using the standard framework, I use the add method of the ClientCertificates
collection of the web service (System.Web.Services.Protocols,SoapHttpClientProtocol)
or the web request (System.Net.WebRequest).
But, for the Compact Framework, that collection does not exist in these objects.
Is there any other way of passing a certificate to a web service ?

Thank you.

The IP*Works SSL V6 .NET CF component provides the facility for the client to present its certificate to the server through the properties SSLCertStore, SSLCertSubject, and SSLCertEncoded. Check out the evaluation version of the component at the following site --
