Hi Guys

Could someone let me know how i would go about identifying whether an IBM iSeries i810 running OS v5r4 has an SSH root account configured upon it and if needs be, how i would go about configuring one?

Reason being is that i am having a scan ran against it using IBM Proventia Network Enterprise Scanner of which requires an SSH root account.

Regards

big

You can set up an SSHD server (daemon) on an AS/400 running OS/400 V5R4:

The "root" account on an AS/400 is called QSECOFR.
