Although the TN5250E spec supports password encryption, the CA/400 team
never got around to implementing it, in any version of CA/400.

As of V4R4 OS/400, Telnet, FTP and several other servers do support SSL, but
only with an SSL-enabled client (which from IBM are only the V4R4 Express
client,  Personal Communications and IBM's Host On-Demand product).

For the adventuresome, IBM offers an "as-is" Telnet proxy server that
provides SSL for V4R2 and V4R3 on the Web.
