File transfers from UNIX box to IBM Mainframe

File transfers from UNIX box to IBM Mainframe

Post by Samir Chop » Wed, 31 Jan 1996 04:00:00

Does anyone out there know of any software that would facilitate
file/batch transfers from a Sparc 1000 (Solaris 2.4) to a IBM 3090?
Installing TCP/IP on the IBM is not an option. I believe our group
tried SunLink RJE and failed to get it to work.

Please e_mail. I'll summarize if anyone is interested.

1. Need secure file transfer between Mainframe and Unix

Subject: Looking for secure (encrypted) file transfer
            between IBM Mainframe and Unix boxes

I have been asked to research the existence of existing (COTS) products
that would allow files to be exchanged (FTP'd I say) between IBM
mainframe systems (with TCP/IP capability, I assume) and Unix platforms
(note the plural form).

This is an ongoing requirement and simplified key management is desired.

I suggested that they look for an implementation of the secure socket
layer (SSL) protocol, but I don't think there are any as of now.  

Is anyone working on implementing SSL for other than WWW use?

I'm open to suggestions?  (Only polite ones please.)

Thank you in advance.
