FM11, LDAP & SSL

I'm trying to get a FM11 Server on Windows Server 2003 to talk to LDAP over SSL.

 

In the Admin Console I went to "Database Server" then clicked the "Configure Directory Service..." button to start the "Directory Service Assistant".

Entered the "Address" & "Entry Point" provided by IT, and checked the SSL box which matched the "Port" number they gave me.

When I click the "Test Directory Service Settings" button, I get an error saying it can't connect.

 

The IT guys emailed me a SSL certificate file and the FileMaker Server documentation says the certificate needs to be installed on both FMServer & FMPro computers.

 

So what do I do with the file?

 

I've never setup anything like this; are there any tricks I should know about?
