Peer cert cannot be verified

running asterisk 11.8.1
centos 6.5 x64

firewall is wide open to this server. Tried disabling ssl in yum.conf

network works and I can ping various sites. DNS resoplves host names.

I can wget a file from the base repository url with --no-check-certificate switch

Freepbx and asterisk are both up and running and functional but since the boot error occurs it takes user intervention everytime i reboot.

tried commenting out mirrors and using base urls to no avail.

disable all repos except base as well.

try yum clean all.
