OK, I have a need to FTP some data but the client wants it encrypted. I figure I have two choices: 1) Get some SSL-enabled FTP client and server 2) Use PGP to encrypt the original file and then ftp that file I decided option 2 was interesting so I went to get the PGP source to see how hard it would be to port to the AS/400 when it struck me, I can run AIX binaries with PASE. One short trip to pgp.mit.edu and I had a zip of a tarball of PGP binaries compiled for AIX. I opened the zip in WinZip and then opened the tarball in WinZip and copied the contents to the IFS. A quick hop over to green screen land, start up QShell and I'm running PGP on the AS/400. In the immortal words of Tony, it's GRRRRRRRRRREAT! One question, is there a way to interact with the QSHELL environment that isn't as ugly as 5250 mode. QSHELL, like all unix, expects character at a time, not record at a time. The command-line hit, hit enter for program to see keystroke, interface is ugly when working with AIX stuff. -Walden ------------ Walden H Leverich III President Tech Software (516)627-3800 x11 WaldenL@TechSoftInc.com http://www.TechSoftInc.com
