Logging in with a soft token

You can log in to IBM® FTP with a valid PIN. Your administrator must have configured your account for IBM MFA Compound In-Band. This use case requires a soft token application.


Perform the following steps:

  1. Open an IBM FTP connection and enter your user name.
  2. Press Enter.
  3. Enter your PIN in the soft token and generate a passcode. Use the copy feature to copy the passcode.
  4. Paste the 6- to 8-digit passcode displayed by the soft token in the password field, followed by the separator, followed by your passphrase or password.
    Note: Your security administrator can reverse the order in which you enter the credentials, so that you enter your passphrase or password first, followed by the separator. Consult your security administrator for guidance.
  5. Press Enter.
    If successful, IBM FTP displays PASS.
