We have had some of our financial customers take a two tiered approach.
To keep the actual file transfer off the i, they take the files in to an FTP server that's not on the i and then get the files from that server via the i.
Not my choice, but they cited compliance reasons for doing so. Works fine.

subject: Allowing SFTP in to your i.
We have a financial institution that wishes to initiate sftp with us. We
would be the server.
I read the wiki article at:
The bottom of that had some external references, some of which worked
(Attention YIPs: You may want to fix their reference to you!)
One item of extreme concern is:
Security implications of using SSH on iSeries
Apparently it totally ignores any existing ftp exit points you may have
written. This is a major shock to me. Then there are concerns about
ccsid translation and whatnot. Should I be concerned as I am? Or is this
FUD? The one reply to the email leads me to NOT believe it is FUD but a
rather valid concern.
