hello.
as far as i see, you have set the listen block well, however the error message what you get implies, that you have a self signed certificate for users.
your client does not accept the self signed certificate and blocks the connection itself, so your options are:
- try with a different client
- make your client accept the self-signed certificate
- generate "normal" certs via LE
- last resort: let opers oper up without secure connection

Some examples:
1, new client - from windows i know mirc can accept self-signed certs
2, LE certs: https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/Using_L ... UnrealIRCd
3, last resort: i wouldn't give you links, but you can find it for sure in the documentation, but really that should not be used :)

What Lord255 says is correct. Which IRC client do you use?
