Citrix Xendesktop Certificate error

I am trying to configure Xendesktop in a lab environment.  I have trial versions of everything.

Here is my setup.
* I have 2 servers each running Xenserver.  2 instances of Server 2008 R2 are on one server and one instance of Win 7 64 Bit is on the other.  (I have 2 servers because I do not have a single server powerful enough to run everything in case you are wondering and they are not pooled)

* One instance of Server 2008 is the Domain Controller, also runs DNS/DHCP. "Xen" is the domain name.
* The second instance of Server 2008 is a member of the Xen domain and is running Xendesktop.
* The Win 7 instance is a member of the Xen Domain and is only running Adobe Reader, Flash and MS Silverlight.

The problem:  When I attempt to install the Citrix Receiver on the Win 7 vm, I get the following error when I a prompted to  " Enter your work email or Server Address."
I enter the IP of the Server running Xendesktop (not sure if this right, but I have tried them all), which is and i get the follwoing error:

"Certificate provided to the the server is not trusted.  Account information cannot be added"

I have tweaked the brower to try to get around this to no avail.  This test is just on a tiny LAN.

FYI, I following the video for setup provided by Citrix and there is no mention of this.  My only deviation from their setup is the fact i am forced to use 2 servers.

Can someone please set me on the right path and help me get pas this ???

the citrix receiver try to connect to the xenapp service site at the webinterface (at your desktop controller - broker)
because the receiver try to use https the installed certificate has to match the called url.
look to the certificate used by the IIS.

i think the win7 vm should simulate your client device and not the vm to publish...?
