Certificate issue

Hello there...

I get the following error:

wget -O-
--2013-10-21 15:57:22--
Resolving 175.x.x.x
Connecting to|175.x.x.x|:443... connected.
ERROR: cannot verify‚s certificate, issued by ‚/C=US/O=VeriSign, Inc./OU=VeriSign Trust Network/OU=Terms of use at (c)10/CN=VeriSign Class 3 Secure Server CA - G3‚
Unable to locally verify the issuer‚s authority.
To connect to insecurely, use ‚--no-check-certificate‚.

hoping for some pointers as to what the issue is

The cert is installed on a F5 in front of this box.

Does it work properly through a browser?

Are you absolutely sure the domain and fine details you generated with the sign request are absolutely correct?

If the box you are using doesn't have access to the outside world it won't be able to check the cirtificate against the CA for things like revokation etc. If you know the certificate is valid, because it's your own server / router /etc. then use the --no-check-certificate option in wget.
