I'm in the process of developing a Windows application using Visual Studio that accesses and updates database tables on the iSeries. Using the Client Access ADO .NET .dll's and things are working well.
However, a requirement has come up for encryption of traffic between the Windows app and the iSeries. I've been trying to enable SSL (or any type of secure encryption) in the connection string, but evidently I'm missing something in the setup on the iSeries side. Using SSL=True generates a communication error when trying to initiate the connection.
We don't typically use SSL for our iSeries traffic in general, so we haven't ever configured anything on the system side as it relates to SSL.
Does anyone have any experience using SSL, and if so, can you point me in the right direction on this (including some documentation links)? I've been trying to find something for the last day or so and am coming up empty.
