SBS 2008 RWW Certificate problems

I have an SBS2008 server on which I want to use RWW. I have requested a SSL certificate from RapidSSL that uses the domain name remote.myserver.org. I retrieved the certificate, and then imported the certificate using the SBS Console Add a Trusted Certificate wizard. It was successful, but when I access my site and attempt to connect to a machine via RWW, I am still getting the error saying that I need a certificate. Not sure how to debug this. Any help would be appreciated.

remote.myserver.org?  Or remote.mydomain.tld as listed on your public DNS servers?

i figured it out. It actually did work, but I was accessing RWW with https://myserver.org/remote, not https://remote.myserver.org/remote, for which the certificate was created.
Thanks anyway

By the way, I did have to add the A record for remote.myserver.org to the name server zone file, too.
