My understanding is that sFTP on the iSeries only works with a key exchange file and not with a userid/passord (in batch mode which would be the goal here).

I am also working with Wells Fargo to automate the pickup of a lockbox. They do NOT do key exchange sFTP and so only FTPs is possible.

Scott, and other gurus,

Well, we've had some discussion with Wells Fargo and as much as they support FTP/S, they say, in their experience with i shops, it is better to use SFTP. So, the bottom line question is, "How do I do it"... using a userid and password and no certificate, via a REXX program I'll schedule to run, in batch, at a certain time each day, without using any Windoz client software or other interactive software?

When I asked back in August about FTP/S vs. SFTP, someone questioned why SFTP would only be used with a userid and password that has to be changed every 60 days and not with a certificate. The answer is: Because that's the way Wells Fargo wants to do it and that's their system.

I've already created a REXX program to take our bank draft file and put a Wells Fargo specifically formatted first row in the file I'm going to send, but now I need to expand my REXX EXEC to call SFTP and send the file.

Thanks in advance for your help,
