'wget' command not downloading from 2017gb_17j emissions modeling platform ftp site

While I was looking for the text files that list the merge dates for different 2D emissions sectors of the 2017gb_17j emissions, I tried to download the folder at Index of /Air/emismod/2017 (epa.gov) but I was not getting the response I expected. When I type ‘wget https://gaftp.epa.gov/Air/emismod/2017/smoke_2017gb_platform_core_09feb2021.zip’, I get this response:

--2021-03-01 09:50:59--  https://gaftp.epa.gov/Air/emismod/2017/smoke_2017gb_platform_core_09feb2021.zip
Resolving gaftp.epa.gov (gaftp.epa.gov)..., 2620:117:506f:c7::f063
Connecting to gaftp.epa.gov (gaftp.epa.gov)||:443... connected.

And then nothing will have been downloaded - I only see the linux prompt again.

We recommend you try adding --no-check-certificate to your wget command and see if that works.

That did the trick - thanks a lot!
