Subsystem rotuing by IP address for QZDASSINIT (SSL/TLS) connections

In Navigator Heritage there were the chance to manage rotuing for incoming connection in SSL/TLS to a specific server QZDASSINIT in any subsystem, custom too.

This was the link:

With the new navigator for i there is no possibility to manage the Database server.

Actually, as stated by IBM support, there's no way to manage it via any stored procedure or GUI interface, the only way to manage SSL/TLS connections to DB2 for i is to reactivate heritage Navigator, follow the link instructions and disable ADMIN2 again.

It isn't strictly required to have it managable by the New Navigator, but there should be some managing functionality that is not to reactivate the ADMIN2 and than deactivate it just to manage this functionality.

Many thanks in advance.

    The CEAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a MEDIUM priority requirement that should be addressed. Having a solution to meet this need seems like a good idea. However, we have voted medium as we would like IBM to focus on other prioriries at this time

    Background: The COMMON Europe Advisory Council (CEAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CEAC has a crucial role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your RFE.

    To find out how CEAC help to shape the future of IBM i, see CEAC @ and the article "The Five Hottest IBM i RFEs Of The Quarter" at

    IBM understand this request and will be adding this support into the new version of IBM Navigator as part of a future iteration.
