Hi Patrick,
Yes, we are using TLS1.2 protocol. I have seen this link and been following the instructions. I am trying to follow the instruction to create the certificate and seems I am having a little problem. The very beginning step mentions to create a "Certificate Authority (CA)" I do not see the link to perform this option and it mentions in the documentation that if I don't see it, then one is already created. I am pretty sure it is created it but I am not sure what I should do. Thank you.

Hello Reggie,

Currently we are using IBMi Access Client to connect to our AS400 systems and it is doing it via port 23. Per our security group. We need to change this to use a more secure port i.e. port 992. We have read some documentations that we need to make this change by updating certificate information. We are using some sort of certificate but from what I can tell, they all are expired and not maintained and not sure how to make this change to use port 992 instead of port 23. Would anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.

It's not only the port but the protocol that is changed: From plaintext telnet to TLS.

A quick Google search brought up this:


Should help as a starting point.

:wq! PoC
