Explanation

OpenFTPD does not accept self signed client certificates. If you create a client certificate in SmartFTP, a self signed certificate is created. For more information on how to create a self signed client certificate please see the following Knowledge Base Article: SSL Error: Credentials

Solution (Server Side Only)
You can edit the src/ftps/tlsutil.c file in the openftpd source tree and change the following line:

from:
tls_no_verify = 0;

to:
tls_no_verify = 1;
