Web Server certificate question

Hi all,

This isn't exactly an Omnis question, but it is related.  Hope someone can help.

I have an Omnis Javascript application running on a client site.  The app is running on a Mac OS X Server inside their firewall.  The app can be run from outside their firewall via a secure port in their firewall.  When I do this, the url looks like this:
In the above example, 12.345.67.89 is the IP address of the firewall, and port 5922 is a secure port opened to the server.  Apache is listening on this port.

This all works perfectly well, except that users get a warning saying that the site may not be secure.  My client has asked that I purchase a trusted certificate for the site.  I have done the following:

1) Gave the server a host name of jimsdomain.com
2) Registered jimsdomain.com and purchased a trusted certificate.  [note: the domain name is not associated with an IP address]
3) Added the certificate in Server Manager on the server, and it shows up as valid

BUT - I still get warning messages in my browser when I access the app, since the url that I type in <https://12.345.67.89:5922/rfMyApp.htm> does not match the certificate name 'jimsdomain.com'

Is there a way to do this?  Do I need to install a certificate on the firewall?
