This goes into the server config file. First you have to define a group
a for this group you have to enter the following lines:
ssl-ignore-unknown-ca = true
ssl-ignore-host-mismatch = true

or you could access the server with the name in the certifacte and enter
the following line:

ssl-authorities-file = path_to_ca.crt
