Plus, the same person indicated that there is already encrypted password authentication built into the (newest - 1) version of the AS/400 telnet server. You can read some RFC's that propose that authentication (links on the tn5250 developer site). Obviously things have progressed beyond the proposal stage. > I think I see a flaw in that logic... Sorry that you misunderstood. Clearly the encrypted link I was talking about is the one between the Linux proxy and the the java client. As you say, what would be the point of encrypting a connection between a local proxy machine and the AS/400? Based on the new telnet server information above, it may be possible to encrypt all the way through the proxy to the new telnet server. But, for those AS/400 sites that have not upgraded, an encrypting proxy server would still be useful. +--- | This is the LINUX5250 Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to LINUX5250@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to LINUX5250-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to LINUX5250-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +---
