Last week I posted inquiring as to the availability of PGP for the AS400.
<snip>
1.  Encrypt the file on the AS400 and send it using FTP.  I see that PKZIP
for the AS400 supports encryption.

I, personally, wouldn't bother using the encryption that comes with PKZIP -
there are crack programs around that can decode the password and it doesnt
do any *serious* encrypting.
I have used many encrypt programs for m$-W9x there are some that are (pardon
me) weedy and some are good n' strong (all for free too!). I have a few I
use myself (even down to one that encypts *and* sends the decoder program
with the encrypted file <but not the passphrase obviously>) and all do a
slightly different job. If you need my list please say and I will send it
you (or the group).

So in concluding; my recomendation would be get a good'un that runs under
m$-W9x then use, say, CA/400 to move it about on your AS400 box.
