Please add nslookup, host, dig as part of the base os or TC1

I need to use nslookup (could maybe settle for dig or host) from IBM i. However you only get these tools if you have option 31 of SS1 loaded. Option 31 will no longer be supported as per https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/announcements/end-marketing-en...

im Parameter ALIASDMN können leider nur 10 Aliasnamen eingetragen werden, wir würden für unsere Niederlassungen aber ca. 30 ALIAS benötigen.

WRKSMTPUSR - Same alias may be used for more than one user when unique for each domain.

In CHGSMTPA we have 3 different domain. We have these users: FAKTURA1 e-mail: post@bladetmotgift.no FAKTURA5 e-mail: post@bladetfokus.no FAKTURA6 e-mail: post@bladetbevis.no In WRKDIRE there is no problem, but in WRKSMTPUSR it's not possible. TCP5...

Change Auto start of FTP service from *YES to *NO for default IBM i installation

By default the FTP service on IBM starts and accepts unencrypted connections. Best practice is to limit, encrypt or disable FTP access. So, starting at the next version of IBM i I would suggest we disable the FTP service by default. Users can then...

Add a WRKFCNUSG QIBM_QTMF_SERVER_REQ* option to restrict the system ftp subcommand.

Any ftp client can log into the server and use the ftp subcommand system to determine the name of the OS and what level it is running. IBM does try to obfuscate the information provided by using the name of an OS long discontinued (OS/400) instead...

Ability to send notification if IDS is disabled

We recently enabled IDS on our Power 9 iSeries. Is there a way a notification could be added if a threat inside your network disabled IDS (as another layer of protection) so that those on the IDS notification alert list would be alerted to this ac...

Lock CMNxx from having multiple IPs assigned

We have a customer system that we will be hosting at our data center and we would like to be able to block the CMN03 port which is used as the a LAN Console port from being changed to allow anything else to use it.
9 months ago in IBM i / Networking 3 Future consideration

Add SMTP attribute to limit number of outbound emails per minute.

Many 3rd party relay services have limits on the number of inbound emails allowed in a specified time frame from a mail server. We use SendLayer to relay emails from our IBM i server. SendLayer has a 250 email limit per minute. Would be a nice enh...
