First of all, you have to read the document named "IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Unified Telephony Lite Client troubleshooting guide" (here). A good port configuration is important.
404 error can be cause by a misconfiguration of Virtual Hosts.

I had to remove 5060 & 5061 lines, restart and retest your call from a SIP endpoint to a S9 client
