Does Meteor Allow Self Signed SSL Certificates

I am currently trying to connect a React Native app to a Meteor server. I am able to connect to the web socket using a browser Web Socket Client. However, my react native app which uses the react-native-meteor boilerplate is unable to connect to the web socket (it is able to connect to web sockets on the local network). I am using a self-signed SSL certificate. Could this be preventing a successful connection from the phone app to the web socket?

Any help is appreciated!
