I recommend setting PWDRQD(*YES) at a minimum and PWDRQD(*ENCRYPTED) being best. Unfortunately, the AS/400 DDM client in the past has not supported sending a password, so the setting is a problem. So, to make it work, use server authentication entries similar to: ===> addsvraute usrprf(MyUsrPrf) server(QDDMSERVER) + usrid(MyUsrID) + password(myusridpwd) QDDMSERVER must be specified in upper case. And in order to get server authentication entries to work, you need the 'Retain server security data' QRETSVRSEC system value set to '1' for 'Retain data'. Piece of cake. Intrasystems Communications Programming manual discusses concepts such as DDM back to the same system. Distributed Data Management discusses security as above in the topic 'Using DDM over TCP/IP' then 'DDM Security using TCP/IP'.
