I've used enterpriseDT edtFTPj free software
(http://www.enterprisedt.com/index.html). It doesn't support SSL out of the
box but it has methods that would make it easy to subclass some of their
classes and use SSL sockets instead of non-SSL sockets. It comes with java
source code and is licensed under the LGPL. They also have a version that
you can pay for that includes many flavors of secure FTP out of the box.

On other forums, there has sometimes been confusion between FTPS and
sftp. You're talking about "normal FTP", over an encrypted SSL

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
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.
