Remote desktop certificate error

In attempting to connect to a remote site I install the certificate.
the response is "the certificate install was successful"
Then move on to the internal server and cannot connect due to a certificate error.
The same certificate has no install option, only an error that the computer cannot verify the certificate.
screen shots attached.

Is there a setting I need to change so it will recognize the cert?
As always thanks for your assistance.

This looks like a self-signed certificate these can never be trusted you have to accept/click ok for these

You have to install the certificate into the trusted root certificate authority for the local computer. It will work...
