I have a couple of questions around certificates issued by a Certified Trusted Store.

I could remember that I have implemented a SSL connection to a WebService wherein I had to generate a Self signed certificate from the server and import that in my client. Do I have to do the same when I get a certificate from a trusted store? Should I install the server certificate on my client machine's keystore? Or simply because of the fact that the server was certified from a trusted store, the client can live without it when negotiating an SSL connection? I have very little experience in this. Please correct me if I was stupid here.

Good. I figured that out. If I have a certificate issued from a CA, I do not have to import any client certificates on my client machines.
