I am trying to set up Live Communicator on a smart phone. I have it installed but I am unable to get the phone to recognize the server name. I installed the certificate from the server LCS is installed on. What are some example server names people are entering onto the phones?

The certificate I do have is a root certificate on the client side. The error message I get on the phone is:
Error: Unable to connect to server. Please check if correct certificates are installed.

For server name on the mobile phone should it be an external IP?  I am connecting by using TLS.

Should the sign in name be the users email address?

The server that LCS is installed on is also the certificate server. The certificate that is on the mobile device was generated to connect to our exchange server(different server).  Should this certificate work or do we need to generate another certificate? If so, how is this done. I have never done this. In addition, the certificate that we are currently using was generated before LCS was installed. Does that matter?
