David: Guesswork on my part, but part of the answer might be that FTP/REXEC(RunRmtCmd) are common clients that are outside of IBM's control. IBM cannot provide an iSeries administrator with any tool to control the client side, therefore they created control on the server side. iSeries Access is an IBM product and they have provided administrators with some ability to control what gets installed and/or enabled on the client side. If you don't want a user to use iSeries Access remote command/distributed program call for example, then don't allow it to run from the PC. I realize this is not a wholly satisfactory answer because I don't know the answer. But in the absence of direct IBM response to your question, I guess this list will have to use some reasoning to work out the basic form of an answer -- if a pattern exists.
