SSL Handshake Failed - XMPP - Ubuntu 10.04 - pidgin 2.10.11

About a month ago I was no longer able to connect to our internal Cisco
XMPP server.  Nobody else is having this problem

I have removed and re-installed pidgin including removing the ~/.purple

I am able to connect fine on other machines and VMs without a problem.  The
other machines ask if I want to accept a self signed cert when initially
connecting to the account.

Here is a copy of my Debug Window:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time,
