Have you set them up separately first? That usually makes life easier.
Your symptom is that of appopraching a web seber which is trying to set up an SSL connection qhich requires a certificate on both sides. This is the way that one of the IdP ports is configured - but not one that you would ever be looking at with a browser.
Further if you were going Shib2 Sp <-> Shib2 IdP it wouldn't even be being used (since that setup should be using encryopted attribute push).
Anything of interest in any of the logs?

Subject: shibboleth 2.0 idp/sp
I am trying to set up a shib2 idp and sp using the local install instructions. I'm having a whole raft of problems with attribute release and usage but when I go to the local sp with Windows IE7 it comes up with a box labelled "Choose a digital certificate" that states:
"The website you want to view requests identification.
Please choose a certificate"
The list is blank but if I say OK it just logs in to the SP via the IdP normally. Anyone have an idea why it does this, firefox works normally?
