Can you create a usable AS400 object to the host directly?

Also I noted that you are using "getSecureConnection". Perhaps this is a
problem with the certificates needed to establish the underlying SSL

Subject: "General Security Error" obtaining AS400 object from

Hi there,

Here is my code snippet:

String system = args[0];
String username = args[1];
String password = args[2];
int serviceType = Integer.parseInt (args[3]); AS400ConnectionPool pool =
new AS400ConnectionPool(); pool.setMaxConnections(32);
try {
AS400 as400 = pool.getSecureConnection(system, username, password,
serviceType ); System.out.println("Connected to: "+as400.getSystemName()); }
catch (ConnectionPoolException ex) { ex.printStackTrace(); }

If I pass in QSECOFR with password in args 2 and 3, I get a connection. If I
pass in the user profile I'd like to run as (TLXDRIVER) I get "general
security error" ConnectionPoolException.

The user id and password are valid (tested this by changing them and got the
expected error messages).

This is only happening on one customer site, never been a problem before.
Can anyone point me in the right direction on what to suggest to the
customer? I wasn't aware that there was any particular permissions required
to allow a user profile to connect via the java toolkit and the IBM FAQs
don't really help much.

As an aside, if I run the jt400 driver in native mode (as TLXDRIVER) I get a
different error message ("Connection refused")

Many thanks
