How Hard is it to Add SSL Encryption to IBM i Access for Windows 7.1 and i OS 6.1?

ssl certificateNot very hard, it turns out.

With one of my clients, we were¬†able to do it from scratch in two days. IBM has some good instructions and it’s not that hard to implement SSL for use with all Access for Windows functions, including Telnet PC5250.

I’m working on documenting the process for IT Jungle in a two-part article starting in my October 9, 2013 Admin Alert column. I’ll post a link here when it’s ready.
