Server 08, RD WEB Access, credentials prompt

ok, so I'm setting up RD WEB Access on a Server 08 R2 box that IS a domain controller.  I know it's not recommended, but I'm just playing, learning, etc, so work with me.

on my server 08 DC, I installed RD WEB access and populated it with three apps.  When I hit the site from my LAN, I can see the three apps.

When I click on one, I get a message about an unknown publisher running a remote app which I can click thru by clicking Connect.

the next thing I get, and the problem, is I get a Windows Security prompt asking me for my credentials to execute an app on the host server.

How do I get rid of this?

Is this because I am running it on a DC?

Also, I'm using a self signed cert.  Can I export that and install it on my PC and get arouond the cert problem of not having a public cert?

Thanks

Cliff

You can also check I trust this computer and to not warn me any more.

It will only ask it once if you have save credentials checked.

I use a local CA Certification Authority and added the domain certificate to my trusted publisher root store.
