zipware for AIX4.3

I need to find some zip/unzip shareware that can sit on AIX 4.3 and will
support encryption.  What I have currently does okay as long as no encryption is involved, but the unzip chokes when the zip files require a password.

Currently, I am clumsily dragging files to my hard drive, unzipping them with Winzip, and sending the files back up to the RS6000.  

I remember there being something flukey about this version of AIX, so if
anyone has any proven shareware that will allow me to stay on one machine, I'll be a happy camper....

I don't know of any versions of zip/unzip other than the InfoZip stuff. It looks like sources for the latest version of the encrypted xip/unzip are at ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/infozip/src/. Also I don't know what version you've got, so it might be good to get that version and build it.

Hi
Use gzip/gunzip utility
check out the site www.gzip.org

You can find binaries for many public-domain tools (including gzip) on www-frec.bull.com.

Very useful website for AIX admins !

I went to www.gzip.org, and it seems gzip (for AIX at least) doesn't support encryption.  It offers PGP (which apparently uses gzip) as an alternative.

I didn't find AIX supported gzip.  Thanks for the help.  In fairness, I did find what I needed based
on the comments by jlevie.

If jlevie will repost his comment as an answer, I will be happy to accept it and give up the points.

I hope thats the fair thing to do....

Thanks to all
