Is that right?
I see it referenced but not displayed in the expect script. But had no idea it was sent in clear txt. It’s an encrypted file transmission. Why not encrypt the password as well?

The problem with userid/pw is that it is sent in clear text.

Jerry, we are prepared to do key exchange as well and so far out of all the
vendors we work with only 1 has required key exchange.
I know you are wording it the other way around, that YOU absolutely require
it, however.
We were happy to get password working - much easier to get up and
transferring files for everyone... because we realize that key exchange is
a challenge for some.

Our first choice with sFTP is to use secure key exchange.

Only if our partner resists (and is all powerful) will we revert to
userid/password which requires pExpect (or Expect if not Python).

guys - appreciate it but this is not new development...

this is a pretty nice ftp/sftp engine built using PASE and uses Expect
script for passwords. Overall it has proven to be a pretty good
application.

Just need to consider this... I'm honestly thinking that we simply do not
need to use the STMFCODPAG(*PCASCII) on our cpytoimpf when we move the
ibmi
file to the IFS.

going to try that.

We have extensively used python to drive our sFTP scrips.

We have integrated pExpect in Python which gives you granular control of
the process.

Python is a super powerful addition to the IBM I with its ability to
issue sql commands to any db2 file on the I side and to run any IBM I
command from within Python.

You can also skip the "engine" and just write a python script or even a
simple bash shell script that does this end-to-end.

Such scripts can be launched in PASE from within a CL suitable for job
scheduling.
