I think Jerry is trying to do the same thing I wanted to do but could not get it to work either. I needed to do an sFTP file transfer in unattended mode in the middle of the night and the company who I was sending data to used only sFTP but only with userid and passwords, not public keys. I needed to send the userid and password to the remote server just like I do FTP from the iSeries, using a script file. I ended up getting WsFTP from Ipswitch which has an sFTP implementation that let me define the userid and password in the a script. The PC it runs on has a drive map to the IFS and at 2:00 am kicks off an SFTP logon to the remote server, sends a userid and password, copys a file from the remote server to the IFS and then copys a file from the IFS to the remote server and disconnects.

Hey Jerry, Almost all ssh clients supports user/password only in attended jobs. If you try to create a client ssh session from iseries to a ssh server, and if you do not provide a key, then you will be prompted for a password. The same happends when you connect to an iseries ssh server. So, what exactly did you try to do and failed? Shalom Carmel ---------------- www.hackingiseries.com ----- Original Message -----

Help me out here. It appears that this implementation of SSH does not support passing
userid and password and only supports the public/private key
