I have to submit a remote command from the AS/400 to run on a UNIX system. I am told by security admin. that I can only use Secure Shell(ssh). Both the AS/400 and the UNIX server are within the firewall. I do not know where to start. Does OS/400 V5R3 have this capability? Do I need additional software and if so what do you recommend? Please help. Thanks, Ash

    I am surprised your security admin did not mention this but is SSH installed on both machines? If so it is a simple matter to open an SSH connection. You need to open a shell/command window on the AS/400 and you would type something like this: ssh -l login_id(for the UNIX box) machine address(Of the UNIX box) You should then be prompted for your password. Once you have succesfully logged in the shell/command window is now attached to the UNIX machine. Run your commands and type exit when you are finished. If you need to copy a file from one machine to the other you can use SCP which is usually part of the SSH software cluster.

    I haven't the vaguest idea about OS/400 but usually unix like operating systems have sshd installed. If both machines are within the firewall what diffference does it make what mechanism you use to connect as long as the server is configured to accept connections of that type?
