Please see this link : Certificate issue on remote desktop

I have 2 PCs with Windows 7 Ultimate... (both are in NETHOME)
PC 1 : computer name = alfa -> (main pc) , IP = 192.168.0.1
PC 2 : computer name = beta-lap ->(laptop) , IP = 192.168.0.2
connection type : cross cable ...

When I want to remote one of these PC's from the other, I get the below error:

Full Title :  
Remote Desktop Connection    
Body Text :  
The remote computer could not be authenticated due to problems with its security certificate. It may be unsafe to proceed.

Certificate name

Name in the certificate from the remote computer:

blablabla

Certificate errors

The following errors were encountered while validating the remote computer's certificate:

The certificate is not from a trusted certifying authority.

Do you want to connect despite these certificate errors?

Don't ask me again for connections to this computer 

I can bypass it by checking despite these certificate errors and view the remote computer, but is this normal?

how can i fix this issue?
Besides why do I have an attention icon on both network connection icons in system tray of both PCs?
What is the problem about this little network?

Where did you get this certificate from? If you inspect the certificate, what is the CN in it? –  wolfgangsz Jun 17 '11 at 11:49
    
dear @wolfgangsz thanks for comment : both of them have this certificate error ... -> what is CN? –  MoonLight Jun 17 '11 at 11:51
    
CN is the common name that this certificate was issued for. It should be the fully qualified host name of the machine using it. –  wolfgangsz Jun 17 '11 at 11:52
    
where can i find it? –  MoonLight Jun 17 '11 at 11:55
