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. rp +--- | 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: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
