Fail to download zip file using download.file()

I'm trying to download a .zip file from url:
but it downloads a 14kb file (the real file is much much bigger).

download.file("https://coast.noaa.gov/htdata/Inundation/SLR/SLRdata/FL/ALFL_MOB_TLH_slr_data_dist.zip",destfile = "./test.zip")

I'm using my work computer which has a browser isolation:
https://safe.menlosecurity.com/https://coast.noaa.gov/htdata/Inundation/SLR/SLRdata/FL/ALFL_MOB_TLH_slr_data_dist.zip

so i tried downloading from that url as well, but that only produces a 1477 bytes file.

I ran download.file on my personal computer for the url and it downloaded the file correctly.

Next I changed the the method to 'libcurl' but i get an error and warning:

**status was 'SSL connect error'Error in download.file("https://coast.noaa.gov/htdata/Inundation/SLR/SLRdata/FL/ALFL_MOB_TLH_slr_data_dist.zip", cannot open URL

I'm not sure how to configure the download.file() function to allow the download of this zip file.
