Sounds like it might be a SSL problem, perhaps as simple as not having
the trust relationship with your CA (for the self-signed certificate);
basically the equivalent of always needing the intermediary cert for any
of the "well-known" certificate authorities (eg. Verisign). You might
try establishing an SSL connection to it to see if there are any obvious
errors. Something like:
openssl s_client -connect your.machine.domain.tld:636 -crlf
Of course, compare that with a "known working" one, if you can...
