Mongodb Shell for macOS - still confused

Trying to follow the instructions for getting the MongoDB Shell on macOS, running into the same problem others have describe where the only version for it says it doesn’t have SSL support, when the course says we need it.

I’ve seen responses saying to just download the version without SSL and it’ll work out. So, is the course wrong about needing SSL? Is the mac version mislabelled and it does have SSL? Really would like to avoid rabbit holes over what looks like incorrect instructions.

Was able to find the answer to my question here: Mongoshell download

IE, without SSL means it can’t provide SSL on the server side; it can still connect with SSL
