yes, several :)

openssl program with the s_client parameter can pull certs from a remote port. try for example:

openssl s_client  -connect www.google.com:443

and cut and paste the section between:
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
and
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
(including those two lines) into a file called cert.cer (or whatever.cer)

ditto, you can use
gnutls-cli --print-cert -p 443 www.google.com 

There is no benefit to using gnutls in this case, but if you are (for example) wanting to get a cert from a mail server that requires you to type "STARTTLS" first, it is invaluable.
