Thanks for the heads up on the wiki link, it has been corrected.
As for SFTP, you should not be shocked that FTP exit points are ignored. SFTP actually has absolutely nothing to do with FTP. It is a completely different protocol and therefore uses completely different servers and clients.

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 http://archive.midrange.com/security400/200609/msg00048.html
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.
