Check out Easy400's site ( They have some
free utilities (with source code) that allows you to easily
secure some TCP protocols, such as TCP and/or TELNET.

Hope this helps.

We want to allow only secure telnet session to connect and
not allow unsecure telnet on port 23. I looked on the
config and can see where you can allow secure telnet but I
don't see any place to not allow unsecure telnet. I
currently have a exit point registered where I am tracking
who is not connecting secure and could just reject the
non-secure using the exit point, or have our network group
block port 23 traffic for us or use the iSeries firewall
block port 23. Is there another option I have not found?

At times we want to restrict certain Users from access the
System i from remote location. But while they are in the
office they can access the System i.

So I can't ask the employee to let me know when they
leaving the office, then go in and disable their User
Profile (they can work later then me). I would also have
make sure I enabled it before they came in in the morning
(they may come in before me).

I have a request to come up with a way to allow us to
enable or disable remote access by user

at any given time or day.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can solve this
Simple program? Inexpensive software solution?
