Before you go down the FTPS route you should really look at SFTP. Much better protocol, more secure.

setup FTPS : (FTP over SSL) is very simple

1. obtain a certificate (or generate one using DigitalCertificateManager) 2. Install the certificate using DCM (http://youras400:2001) 3. assign the certificate to FTP client / FTP server using DCM 4. done use it ; client FTP RMTSYS(... ) SECCNN(*SSL)
server : CHGFTPA ALWSSL(*YES)

Is there some resource that amounts to "SSL (on the i) for Dummies"?

Or, failing that, is there a good "SSL (in general) for Dummies", which could then be followed by "SSL on the i for Folks Who Know SSL in General"?

In particular, I'm interested in getting FTPS working. I am not likely to have the permissions to set up certificates on my system, though, so I might not be able to apply the information directly anyway. I anticipate that it will be slightly more effective for me to go to my manager and our admin with "hey, can you follow the simple instructions at this link to set up FTPS?" than to just say "hey, can you set up FTPS?".

Or could I be really lucky, and there's a ready-made PASE solution (either already installed, or just download-and-go, like Scott's port of 7-zip)? We're on 7.1.

I know, I know, if we are willing to spend money, then obviously that will be a simple way to get FTPS working.

And yes, I'm sure I am looking for FTPS, not SFTP. (I actually can already do SFTP easily using iSeriesPython, for free and with no administrator involvement required.)
