Re: SSL FTP library?



fixed

David,
I've used JScape before. It was pretty easy to use IIRC. I as using it for
SCP, but JScape does have Secure FTP and SFTP abilities.

Yes, I'm talking Secure Sockets Layer ... with the ability to talk to a SSL
enabled FTP server on an iSeries.

Also, from my limited understanding, if you can get an SSL tunnel
from point "a" to point "b", you can then do normal ftp over that SSL
tunnel. So it may be sufficient to get two things: an SSL library and
an ftp library and just use them together.

SSL tunnel requires a SSL tunnel server ... which, I'm pretty sure, the
iSeries doesn't have.

I need to connect to a SSL enabled FTP server on the iSeries ... so I need
a FTP client package that can handle SSL. iSeries specific support is not
necessarily required, as I can work around that using IFS notation.
