I guess your certificate is not signed by any of the trusted CAs on the system. Thus the verification will fail, because there is not trust anchor. In old times (before 1.950, released 07/2013) the default was to not verify the certificate which is of course a bad idea for a default when doing security relevant stuff.

    Yep, I changed that code. These devices run on LANs with multiple interfaces.
