ssl certificateIT Jungle just published part one of my two part article on how to set up PC5250 Telnet SSL connectivity between your PCs and your IBM i partition. In Part 1, I look at how to set up your IBM i server for SSL Telnet using the Digital Certificate Manager (DCM) to perform the following steps:

1. Set up or identify the local Certificate Authority (CA) certificate that can be downloaded to your Access for Windows PC.

2. Configure your IBM i Telnet Server and associated Host Servers to use the local CA defined in step 1 for authentication.

Part two will be published on October 23rd, where I’ll look at the network and IBM i Access for Windows PC changes needed to complete your PC5250 SSL setup.
