Upgrade planning - Future software releases


The following products and functions were supported on prior IBM i releases but will not be in the future.  Plans should be made to replace or discontinue use of these products and functions.

Software Suggested replacement(s)
IBM Navigator for i
Due to changes in how browsers handle self-signed certificates, IBM Navigator for i will no longer be shipped with SSL enabled by default.  Users can configure SSL using the following instructions: http://ibm.co/2f1vzYU.  In addition, any saved URL's for IBM Navigator for i will not work by default because we are now using HTTP and port 2004 instead of HTTPS and port 2005.
