Our software uses SSL as a client (just like FTPS) and therefore I have
many customers needing to set things up to.

I put this together a few years ago:
http://docs.bvstools.com/home/ssl-documentation

The issue you may have with FTPS is simply the need to import Certificate
Authorities so that your IBM i "trusts" the server you're connecting to.

These docs show how to use open SSL to retrieve the certificate and then
you can strip out the CAs for import into your *SYSTEM store.

Another issue is this type of this is "do it once and forget about it". So
when the CAs expire (usually years later) most have forgotten how they did
it. :)

Feel free to contact me for any assistance off line... I'm happy to help.

Thank you, this looks helpful. In fact, as far as I can tell, it's
exactly what I was hoping for.
