Before You Install

  1. Confirm that the OS/400 is version V5R3 or above.
  2. iEncrypt requires the Portable App Solutions Environment (PASE) to be present on your system. To verify that it is installed:
    1. On an iSeries command line, run GO LICPGM, and select option 10. The Display Installed Licensed Programs screen will appear.
    2. PASE will appear as the Licensed Program 5722SS1, with the Description Portable App Solutions Environment. An installed status of *COMPATIBLE or *INSTALLED is acceptable.
    3. If PASE is missing, please install it from your OS/400 software discs before proceeding.
  3. Run WRKLIB RJS7ZIP to confirm that you do not already have a copy of the RJS7ZIP library on your iSeries. If it returns no results, continue to step 3. If it does return results, RJS7ZIP has been installed on your iSeries in the past; ask your iSeries administrator whether to upgrade or clear the library and reinstall.
  4. Make sure that:
    1. FTP is running on the iSeries LPAR where you are installing RJS7ZIP.
    2. Your account has the required system credentials.
      Note: If your account does not have the required system credentials, use QSECOFR or another account with *ALLOBJ special authority.
  5. On the FTP server, make sure that NAMEFMT is set to 1, not 0.
    Note: NAMEFMT is set to 1 on most FTP servers.
  6. If you are using FTP exit programs, create an exception or temporarily disable them during this installation.
  7. Make sure that your RJS7ZIP license matches the iSeries serial, model, and LPAR numbers. If you do not have a license or do not know if your license matches, email [email protected].
  8. On a Windows system on the same network as the iSeries, download the zipped RJS7ZIP save file.
  9. On a Windows system on the same network as the iSeries, download the iEncrypt download installer.
  10. Go to the location of the downloaded installer file, right-click on the file and click Run as Administrator.


  1. Specify the IP address of the LPAR you wish to install to, along with the User and Password of the security officer account you wish to use for performing the install.
  2. Click on Step 1-Connect to IBM i, and click on each button in sequence, waiting for each operation to complete before proceeding to the next. Informational messages will display at the bottom, as will errors messages, if any errors occur.
