"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Two questions:

1) sFTP (ssh File Transfer Protocol) or FTPs (FTP over SSL)?

2) iSeries as sFTP/FTPs client, server, or both?

Hi Gary,

iSeries as sFTP/FTPs client  (depends on the request of our customer)
Gary PattersonVP Technology / Senior Consultant Commented:
Both support certificate authentication, but configuration is different.  

FTP over SSL/TLS (FTPs):  See page  of the IBM i FTP manual: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_73/rzaiq/rzaiqpdf.pdf

sFTP: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas8N1012710
