I'll be working thru this doc this week.

I was disappointed that the documentation is for the old version of DCM.
Since the FTPS support is only for "newer" versions of the OS you would think that the doc could be "refreshed" to use use the new DCM
( http://your_ibm_i:2001/dcm )

New tools but old documentation.....

It has in fact come to pass. You do get three emails now the second has server, user, directory and file information, and the third email has the password.

Reminder to use secopen rather than open in any ftp scripts.

It fails on i 7.1.  I rather expect it worn't work from i 7.2 either due to missing ciphers. It does work on i 7.3.

Be sure to follow the instructions here to trust the IBM certificate.
