Depending on the app, this can result from an expired cert, if the root certificate is not trusted, or if the certificate was issued to a different name than you are trying to connect to.  For the naming, it must match exactly to the issued Subject name for the cert - i.e. if it is issued to server.domain.com you cannot connect to the hostname 'server' or to its IP address without it returning an error.  Nice applications will return an informative message informing you as to why it was rejected, but there are many apps, even popular ones, that aren't so nice.
