ExRCA wasn't able to obtain the remote SSL certificate

I have installed a new Windows 2011 SBS with Exchange 2010 and a RapidSSL 2048 bit certificate. When I run Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyser to test RPC/HTTP connectivity I get the error "ExRCA wasn't able to obtain the remote SSL certificate"
I've done much Google searching but can't seem to get a hold on why this is happening.

Update to my question after poking around a bit more.  I now get the error:
Host name office.<mydomain>.com doesn't match any name found on the server certificate CN=remote.<mydomain>.com
What was the common name you used to register the certificate?

Office.<my domain>.com

Did you use the SBS wizards to set your Internet address name AND generate the CSR for your certificate?

I think all is working now - many thanks for the push in the right direction.
The things I did:
* From EMC,  Server Configuration --> Client Access Changed all instances of remote.<mydomain>.com to office.<mydomain>.com
* Run Connect to the Internet wizard
* Using IIS Manager, changed the binding of https for the Default Web Site from remote.<mydomain>.com to office.<mydomain>.com
