No, sFTP is totally different than FTP. Just a similar sounding
name...and function of course.

FTPS *is* FTP using SSL.

Rob,

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:
http://wiki.midrange.com/index.php/SSH

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.
