Aha! Turns out that for whatever reason the cvsnt-default.pem was not generated during installation. Once I generated it by issuing:
  genkey cvsnt-default.pem
  and then allowed my firewall to permit the outbound communication (this must be what happened during installation and I must have denied genkey access at that time) and set the sserver protocol dialog to reference this file for both the Certificate and the private key everything started to work as advertised.
  Thanks you very much for your help. Sorry for the confusion on my end. I did notice the difference in .pem name between the one I was trying and the one listed at the site http://web.telia.com/~u86216177/InstallCVSNT25.html (i.e. cvsnt-default.pem) but mistakenly assumed that ca.pem had to be the file because it was the only one present in the installation directory.

I tried it both ways (with only Certificate set to the one in the installation and then with neither field set) but neither change had any effect. I did shutdown the server before making these changes and then restart it each time.

There will be a cvsnt-default.pem that was generated by the installer - 
reset both of them to that file.

It sounds like either sserver isn't installed, or that the server can't 
use it. Do any other protocols work?
