SSH is the protocol to communicate with the (bash) shell which runs in
PASE. At least that's how I interpret it. Others might be able to explain
it better.

What downsides have you seen?

I'm trying to use SSH because it's the "right thing". So far I've only
seen downsides to it. Can you elaborate as to why it's better than PASE?

Stop using QP2TERM and use SSH instead. It will solve future heartache.

I've loaded PuTTY now. It's not like the Bash shell I'm used to, and
I'm not a fan. I'm sure I can find the help files and make it work.

If you are used to any of the Unix or Linux shells at all, and want to
even vaguely replicate the experience on PASE, then QP2TERM is simply not
an option. You need a proper TTY interface, which SSH provides and which
5250 does not.

Whatever worst-case scenario you have with SSH is already better than the
best possible 5250 scenario, with respect to command-line interface on PASE.
