Resolving webproxy (webproxy)...,

ERROR: The certificate of ‘get.adobe.com’ is not trusted.
ERROR: The certificate of ‘get.adobe.com’ hasn't got a known issuer.
I went into my web browser (which doesn't seem to have an issue with the
cert), looked at the security for the page and exported the Security Cert chain to a ".crt" file.
In windows, I could click on that to install the cert into Window's local
store and it was "imported successfully".

But it seems wget still doesn't know how to use the native
machines cert-store.

Shouldn't it be able to use the native host's cert store automatically,
or is there some extra magic words / switches I should have known to


Ever since the cert checking was turned on in wget, the only way I've been
able to d/l secure stuff is to tell it to ignore the security, which seems
like it might be counter-productive.

Seems alot like the standard security problem of it making it so difficult
to use, that people simply create an alias to never check security -- which
can't be better than before when I wasn't taught to turn off security (not
that I usually do, but it seems like that's the direction I'm being "hurded"...
