The FTP client does not need the FTP server started so until you
configure your SSL server on your iSeries, just ignore that error, it is
irrelevant to the FTP client issue. Now I gather that your are running
Secure FTP server on your SQL server, correct. The rest of my reply is
based on that.

You do not need a certificate for the FTP client unless the server is
requesting a certificate from the client. If so, the server needs to
issue a certificate to the client. Since you control the FTP server on
the SQL server, how is it configured?

Subject: ftp (from iSeries) question

I did not see a separate "list" for ftp so here is my question,

I need to start a secure ftp session to a sequel server that is ssl

Do I have to set up the digital certificate on the iSeries to connect
securely to the sequel site?
or can I get my secure session by using just the *ssl and *secure
options on the FTP command?

I've tried the STRTCPFTP command but get an error -95 and have not found
this code in books or searches yet.
