Hi,
Thanks for this solution.
But its not work like zip with password.
Just we are encrypting a file, is there any possible way to zip with password.
Because that password protected file need to send in mail and that zip will open in windows.
For this it need to zip with password which one can also open in windows also.

Regards,

hello anilji,
you can use "pkzip" to zip a file using password.
to set a password when you zip a file,use the command given in the following link,
