I am trying to connect from an AS400 running v5r2 to a MS SQL 2005 database that is on a server with Windows 2000 Server service pack 4 as the OS. I have posted the question for the AS 400 experts and it seems that everything is fine on the AS400 side. But I am getting the attached error when I try to run the program JDBCSQLTCL (this calls SQLSERVER program). I have tried the MS SQL JDBC driver version 1.0 and 1.1 and both give an unrecoverable error. When I use the 1.2 version I get a SSL error. Does anyone have any ideas?
