Ignore certificate error when calling an external web service

Hi,

I am calling an external web service from Salesforce.
The error I'm getting is:
 
java.security.cert.CertificateException: No subject alternative names matching IP address x.x.x.x found

Is it possible to tell Salesforce that this is a trusted address and to Ignore the certificate error? Similar when indicating the same to a Web Browser.
We are testing with a development environment but the certificate is for the production domain. So we are working with a trusted specific address that is not covered by the certificate.

Thanks,

For security reasons, you must have a signed server certificate.

While this is not a production org, I don't see the issue of allowing unsecured connexions, if it's wanted by the developer !
Why not allowing some IgnoreSSLIssues function like in other languages ?
