I have been trying to download a file from a remote location to my home folder using wget/curl. With wget I get an error message "Unable to establish SSl connection". The file is hosted on a https.
Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks

The most common issue for this is that you are trying to access a site with an insecure certificate (e.g. the certificate not issued by a trusted CA or there's a domain name mismatch). See this online resource for further details.
You could try either curl's -k flag or wget's --no-check-certificate one to bypass this.
If you are still unable to connect, please update your question with more details on this issue, by letting us know the domain or file you are trying to download, the exact command you are using and the complete error message and any other info you think it might help.
