calling secure web service



I need to consume a secure service but before doing this i need to be authenticated by way of a login certificate.

I have uploaded the client certificate provided into STRUST. When i try to create the client proxy classes by way of the service consumer wizard i receive the below error.

"HTTP error(return code 404, message "connection failed")

URL for the WSDL file is

If i navigate to the URL i am presented with the upload certificate and then continue on to see the wsdl file.

on further investigation SMICM trace file shows below...
