Vembu BDR 3.9.1 [3912018051023] - Connecting to VMware vCenter 6.7 - Self Signed certificate supported?


I have installed Vembu BDR 3.9.1 [3912018051023] on a W2K16 server and I am trying "Add VMware vSphere Host" vSphere 6.7 vCenter (tried both FQDN and IP) but I get the following error in the GUI: Unable to connect to the host : Network connection timed out. Invalid VMware Server IP or Invalid Port.

I can confirm 100% that the W2K16 server can resolve and contact the vCenter server so i know its not that, the account being used also has permissions.... anyway I started to look further into vembuBDR\log\vSphere.log and noticed this error:

2018-06-18 11:56:38.683 - Exception - {} java.rmi.RemoteException: VI SDK invoke Remote host closed connection during handshake at ~[vijava5120121125.jar:na] at ~[vijava5120121125.jar:na] at ~[vijava5120121125.jar:na] at<init>( ~[vijava5120121125.jar:na] at<init>( ~[vijava5120121125.jar:na] at com.vembu.vsphere.SessionManager.connect( ~[vmware.jar:na] at com.vembu.vsphere.SphereManager.login( ~[vmware.jar:na]

It appears it doesn't like my certificate, i am using self signed... are self signed supported?
