Yes, I know.  That's what makes this so frustrating.  The new machine
is our demo box and it's on its way to the trade show.  If I can get
connectivity I will try the code you posted.

I used to think that I could read the manuals and understand what they
said.  This page is almost useless:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/v5r2/ic2924/info/rzaha/rzahajsse
providers.htm  Yes, the provider is called IBMJSSE and I should
specify that on my  java.security.Security.getProvider() method.  The
problem is that it isn't my code - it's Verisign's, and they use
whatever they use as part of their 'runs anywhere' implementation.

Reading about how Java finds the Bootstrap pages
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/tooldocs/findingclasses.html leads
me to believe that the files loaded at bootstrap time are either in
jre/lib (like rt.jar) or in jre/lib/ext.  Well, our friend jsse.jar
isn't in either of those places on the working machine, yet

sun.boot.class.path=
/QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk14/lib/jdkptf14.zip:
/QIBM/ProdData/CAP/jsse14.jar:
/QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk14/lib/IBMiSeriesJSSE.jar:
/QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk14/lib/jce.jar:
/QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk14/lib/jaas.jar:
/QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk14/lib/certpath.jar:
/QIBM/ProdData/OS400/Java400/ext/ibmpkcs.jar:
/QIBM/ProdData/OS400/Java400/ext/ibmjgssprovider.jar:
/QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk14/lib/security.jar:
/QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk14/lib/rt.jar:
/QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk14/lib/charsets.jar:
/QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk14/lib/sunrsasign.jar:
/QIBM/ProdData/OS400/Java400/ext/IBMmisc.jar:
/QIBM/ProdData/Java400/

... no mention of how /QIBM/ProdData/CAP/jsse14.jar: got in there, and
the Infocenter isn't helpful either

I know you're trying to help and I appreciate it.  I'm frustrated with
myself more than anything else at this point because I like to think
that I can step in to the middle of a situation and sort it out, but
that just isn't happening here.  I will run the code when the machine
comes back and let you know what's what.

Thanks!
