does your conserver.cf have an 'sslcredentials' entry pointing to
/opt/conserver/ssl-cred?  almost has to, based on what it's showing.  if
you include that option, the file needs to exist, be valid, etc.  if you
comment that line out, then, yes, ssl should encrypt the connections
without certs.

hopefully that explains things.
