what exactly involved in installing PGP on as/400? just uploading PGP
binaries (what is that?) to IFS? I am not familiar with AIX but this looks
like an opportunity to do so.

Any information will be appreciated.

Subject:  PASE is soooooo cool!

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.
