I would like some assistance on how to use wget from inside our company to download community.rules every so often.   I've made a couple of failed attempts.   Is there a CA certificate I need to accomplish this?   By comparison, we are able to download rpms from redhat using the "-no-certcheck"  flag but it does not make a difference for the snort download.

Our failed output:
root at ...17420... rules]# wget -d -v https://www.snort.org/rules/community/community-rules.tar.gz
Setting --verbose (verbose) to 1
DEBUG output created by Wget 1.11.4 Red Hat modified on linux-gnu.
