VMware View Client

We have several ESXI 5.0 servers in our environment and am really tired of firing up my windows 7 VM and using Vsphere client to be able to see the "VM's". I looked into using VMware View Client for linux and have never been able to get it to work. When I connect, I get:

PHP Code:
Untrust View Connection:

Failed to connect to the View Connection ServerThe server provided an invalid certificateThe certificate authority is invalid or incorrect.

view certificate

blah blah blah 
I found in their manual what one should do to circumvent the issue and decided to try to import the certificate:
PHP Code:
For instructions on importing a root certificate stored in this locationsee the procedure called "Importing a
Certificate into the System-Wide Certificate Authority Database" 
in the document at

but to no evail. When I tell the client:
PHP Code:
do not verify server identity certificates
it give me a HTTP error 400. Has anyone on this planet had any success with this?
