I want to know if it is possible to transfer data from Iseries to a web site and upload some back. This is for our bank and we do not want to use FTP

We need to send files to our bank and receive files back via a web site. What would be the best way. This is the only data we send out of the company now so we would like to do it with what we have and not spend money. We do have a new Iseries with V5R4 so I thought we could use Websphere. What do you think? Pat

Hi,

There’s an article on setting up SCP and SFTP here :-

    I have no clue what SCP or SFTP are. I am an RPG developer I don't know much about PC stuff. Can you explain?

    Hi, SCP is Secure Copy and SFTP is Secure FTP - both are basically secured versions of FTP. SCP works more like a one line command (like a DOS copy or xcopy command), whereas SFTP works very much the same as FTP (so you'd need some sort of script to run it). Regards, Martin Gilbert.

    I do appreciate your help and answers but now I have more questions. Can I use SCP without SFTP? Or also can SCP get the file to the bank and retrieve it too? I ask because I am not using FTP since the bank requires encryption and we would have to purchase something to get it encrypted. Thanks Pat

    Hi, You can use SCP without SFTP, they are both alternative methods to the standard FTP. Regards, Martin.

    ...both are basically secured versions of FTP Neither is related to FTP. They are different protocols. They are related to FTP in the same way they are related to telnet or SNMP -- that is, they are all sockets server protocols and data flows across the socket connection. Beyond that, there is no relationship. The confusion almost always arises because the letters "FTP" are part of the SFTP acronym and, of course, because SFTP is a way of transferring streamfiles between systems. (But you could also transfer files with telnet if you really wanted to. It just wouldn't be very efficient.) SFTP is not a variant of FTP. Tom

    It is interesting that you do NOT want to use FTP. I've set up many FTP transfer to banks for A/R, A/P, Payroll. The iSeries has encryption abilities - so what's the trouble. If I remember correctly: FTP is more foe a machine to machine transfer utility for security. SFTP is a Unix flavor which is a user based security.

    @Foolsewing - I hope you were able to get your transfers running securely Clarification: FTP is a transfer protocol for machines, but has no security, even passwords are sent in plain text. SFTP is FTP inside a SSH tunnel. SSH is used by all platforms and not only Linux/Unix. I use a program called GoAnywhere Director for secure file transfers and data transformation from DB2 to XML as it has a GUI, but runs natively on the iSeries. It supports command line commands.
