IOS connects fine now. Thanks for the tip I installed root CA onto iphone and it connected. I was thinking the same thing CA will be installed by 
PKCS #12.
I did the exact same thing on Snow Leopard but it still does not connect. I will keep trying and let you know. 
Did you try to connect osx with any success?
