On other forums, there has sometimes been confusion between FTPS and
sftp. You're talking about "normal FTP", over an encrypted SSL
tunnel, correct? You are __not__ talking about sftp, which is a part
of SSH.

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.
