Never mind...I see in your article that you say it's only V5R3 and above.

Hi Scott,

Do you know if it's possible to use OpenSSH on a V5R2 system? I guess what
I'm you know if these licensed programs are available for V5R2?

5722SS1 Option 33 - Portable Applications Solutions Environment

5733SC1 *BASE - IBM Portable Utilities for i5/OS

5733SC1 Option 1 - OpenSSH, OpenSSL, zlib

If they are, then I have to try to find someone who has them that I can
borrow them from....

I recently wrote an article about SSH/SCP/SFTP. If you're interested in
that, it's located here (requires a Pro membership with System iNetwork):

In my experience, you don't need to get the server's key -- that'll be
done by SSH automatically. But you do need to generate your own
private/public keys, and install the public key (or have them install
it) on the server.

But a lot of it also depends on how the server is configured. Is it
configured to allow password logons? Is it configured to allow
interactive logons?

If the folks running the server know less about SFTP than you do, how
the heck did they set this up?

Once again, we're attempting to use SFTP (yes, the one in SSH) to connect
a business partner's server. I've done the ssh-keyscan and have gotten
their public key (I think) and have done ssh-keygen and created my
private/public keys (I think). Do they have to install my public key on
their server?

When I 'call qp2term' and enter 'sftp myuserid@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx', I get the

following response:

Connecting to
Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password).
Connection closed

I presume that I'm connected but don't have access to something on their
end. Are the 3 'permission denied' messages a result of a 'retry' or do I

not have access to 3 things or what?

The business partner knows less about SFTP than I do (if that's possible),

so they're no help.
