I'm going to be surprised if that installation works unless it's an app for a jailbroken phone.

I've heard that you can e-mail certificates to yourself and perhaps install them that way. Try that (using a different mail account already set up on the phone of course). :)

Why not SSH it across?

Why not SSH it across?Given the "tone" of the OP's question, I don't think that the device is jailbroken.

Email it to yourself as an attachment, or upload it to a website and enter that URL into Safari.

safari doesnt want to download the .cer file! stupid stupid...i cant bluetooth it across cause iphone only uses BT for headsets...gamail and hot mail both dont want to send the file cause its a .cer file (I THINK) and i need the certificate to set up my exchange email ! so much more trouble than whats its worth

thanks anyway

use firefox to download the file, then email that to yourself, you dont have any other accounts to email from?

Have you tried "Discover" from the app store? Or "MobileFiles" (which lets you have access to your mobileme idisk on the iphone)?
