Greetings iSeries Gurus,

I just successfully set up SSL for an iSeries Access 5250 Emulation connection...
I need to know what port is used by the System i Navigator when it connects to the iSeries...

I know that Telnet uses port 23, FTP uses port 21, and SSL uses port 992 for their connections...
(Curious to note that port 992 is not showing as open on the iSeries...)
