The primary difficulty that I see is that using HTTPS requires the Digital Certificate Manager to be installed and the *SYSTEM certificate store to be created, at a minimum.  IBM currently provides tools to check that via a browser interface, but not the 5250 command line.   There is an open source project that will help with working with the DCM from the command-line, but you say you can't install software.

Feels like a catch-22.

You know, by now, that I don't exactly keep up with the "latest, greatest" new OS updates.

And I'm sure by now, most of you know that we host some web services. Including web services that are strictly HTTPS-only. And that we use Scott Klement's HTTPAPI to access them from Midrange boxes.

Without installing any of our software on a given customer box, is there something we can do, that will check whether that box has the prerequisites for HTTPAPI to access our web services?
