I just installed a new SBS 2011 server.  Don't fully understand certifcates but get the following erros

When I launch OWA or RWW externally I get the following error  .. "There is a problem with this website's security certificate."

When I try to get to a computer thru RWW I get the following error.... " This computer can't connect to the remote computer because the certificate authority that generated the Terminal Services Gateway server's certificate is not valid.  Conatact your network administrator for assistance."

I need a step by step procedure to fix.  I haven't purchased a certificate.
