Tectia Client/Server/ConnectSecure and Server for IBM z/OS 6.3.9 contain the following new features and bug fixes:

Tectia Client and ConnectSecure

New Features:

  • Windows: Added support for Windows 8 for Tectia Client.

  • Windows: Updated the certificate used for signing the Windows packages. Note that the new certificate uses SHA-2 to verify its signature. Microsoft XP with Service Pack 2 does not support SHA-2 and therefore cannot guarantee the integrity of the certificate (KB968730). For Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 2, to validate the certificate, apply the hotfix to KB968730.

Bug Fixes:

  • Documented the sshg3 options "--hostkey-policy" and "--kip".

  • Fixed some documentation inconsistencies in the site commands and in the file advice strings.

  • All Platforms: Newline conversions in Tectia file transfer clients no longer fail to work when transferring files to a VShell Server (VanDyke).

  • All Platforms: Defining "summary-format" to print the file transfer progress percentage no longer fails when connected to an OpenSSH server.

  • All Platforms: File transfers from Tectia Clients no longer crash when transferring files in ASCII mode to a VShell Server (VanDyke).
