gnutls_handshake() failed: -8

We are running on AIX 5.2 Unix platform. I have install curl successfully, but I cannot get a connection to a vendors site. I am trying to get a SSL FTP connection. Below is the curl command I ran and the results. Can you help with the handshake error that I am getting. I have run out of options. Is there something the certificate which I got from the vendor or something else going on? Any direction or help would be great. I did get curl to work connecting to another Unix server via ftp so I know curl works ok.
