Restrict FTP & ODBC Access

Is there an easy way in V7R1 to restrict FTP access to only a certain user or set of users within the iSeries?  We currently have FTP open to all users on the system - but I would like to restrict this so only a pre-defined user (or group of users) can access FTP.

The same goes for ODBC?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

IBM has coded exit points into most system service like FTP and ODBC.  These exit points allow end users to register a program or programs to be called when key events occur in each service - for example during FTP or ODBC login.

Here's an exit point program for FTP that can be modified to restrict access in any way you like:

Here's a simple exit point program for ODBC that you can adapt to your needs.

A number of vendors also sell exit point packages that allow you to easily create groups and secure most of the services in the system.
