X-Chat Aqua Rizon IRC Connection Error, Connection failed. Error: self signed certificate.? (18)

While getting my new Macbook laptop running OSX Lion running I decided to test X-Chat Aqua as my preferred IRC client. So far I like the interface and it reminds me of using X-Chat on Windows so many of the settings are similar. Also I have not found any functions that I require that the software will not accomplish. When making my initial connection to the Rizon IRC or Internet Relay Chat network using SSL I received an error as noted below. The error is easy to resolve using the information below.
