How to make a secure FTP connection from iSeries to PC

I would like to know whether it is possible to start a secure FTP client session on a iSeries box to connect to a FileZilla Server running on a PC. I have a certificate file generated by the FileZilla server but I have not been able to import that into the certificate store on iSeries. I keep getting the "An asn. 1 encoding/decoding error occurred." error message. Any commentssuggestions would be most appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Most of the time that I’ve had certificate problems is because the maker of the certificate was not recognized as a CA trust..

i.e. a certificate may only be issued by a certain select number of certificate authorities e.g. Verisign.

And a locally signed certificate can be rejected..

Here is what iSeries Passport will accept as an authority http://www.zephyrcorp.com/terminal-emulation/kb/ssl_security/supported_certificate_authorities.htm

    There are multiple ways to handle certificates and CAs on your iSeries. The HTTP Administration function can be started from within iSeries Navigator to gice access through Internet Explorer for example. One other way that often goes unnoticed and unknown is in your iSeries Access directory under the Program Files directory on your PC (assuming iSeries Access is installed.) Find and start the cwbcossl.exe program. There are many functions available that can help with relationships between the PC and your iSeries and their certificates. Review what's there. Note that it is primarily an assistant for downloading certifications from the iSeries to the PC, but that it collects a number of functions on one place. The iSeries DCM can be accessed by clicking a button. PC Key Management and Java Key Management buttons are also there. This tool can provide visibility into certificates and stores that is useful in getting organized. Tom
