trouble connecting to iCalservice (on xServe) from ical (client)

ive set up the ical-service on my xServer (running mac osX Leopard 10.5.5) and everything should be OK, but everytime i try to connect from a client (though ical) it get an error saying the either the certificate is not valid or the service is not running& ive checked the directory service (on both the client and the server) which is "saying" everything is OK

Then i tried to set up the account in ical ON the xServer& (exactly the same way) - and gues what - it works PERFECTLY& - so what can be the problem from the client to the exserver?

we have a workgroup on 8 people and want to use the ical-service

The iCal server socket is not listenting to the network address only to local host, or the ca-cert in the keystore of the OS X server has not been propagated to workstations.
