Bug Description

One of the most common errors when trying Landscape LDS (seen on stackoverflow, reddit, etc...) seems to be that landscape-client requires the server certificate to be signed by a CA, unless the server's public key is specified manually.

Yet the failure message is a completely generic one (Failed to connect). It would be good if the SSL failures had a specific message so as to point the users in the right direction.
