Tectia Client, Server and ConnectSecure 6.4.4 include bug fixes. Moreover, in Tectia Server for IBM z/OS, staging feature (that is related to dataset transfers) is now disabled by default.

The following includes a summary of the release notes of each product.

Tectia Client and ConnectSecure

Bug Fixes:

  • Windows: Fixed Tectia command-line clients to assume default window size if they cannot obtain a proper value from the system.

  • Windows: Fixed Tectia command-line clients to properly show authentication prompts in nested connections.

When a user had a terminal session to Tectia Server on Windows running in terminal mode "Stream" and within that session the user started a new Tectia Client connection (from the host running Tectia Server), the authentication prompts were not shown properly.

Tectia Server

Bug Fixes:

  • Windows: Tectia Server Configuration GUI now allows more than 1000 rules on the pages Connections and Encryption, Authentication, and Services.

  • AIX, HPUX: If a connection is disconnected because the authentication failed, Tectia Server will now report one failure. This concerns only PAM, LAM and/or public-key authentication. The behavior has not changed when using password or keyboard interactive with password sub-method: Tectia Server reports one failure per failed password.

Tectia Server for IBM z/OS

New Features:

  • z/OS: For dataset transfers, the default for the 'staging' extended attribute is now 'no'.

Enable staging explicitly only when it is required by sending SITE STAGE=YES or ftadv:S=YES.

Bug Fixes:

  • z/OS: Fixed problems regarding the transfer of zero-length files and datasets to and from z/OS using the Windows Putty psftp client.

  • z/OS: Enhanced file transfer behavior with third-party clients that issue multiple read requests in advance and thus may end up trying to read beyond the end of the file.

  • z/OS: File transfer advice string abbreviations and aliases have been synchronized with those in the documentation.

  • z/OS: A workaround for third-party clients has been provided for the case where a previous 'cd' command is ignored when a subsequent 'get' or 'put' operand begins with a file transfer advice string '/ftadv:.../'. These clients do not prefix their 'cwd' onto the operand because the initial '/' causes it to be interpreted as an absolute path. The 'ftadv' string may now begin with a leading dot './ftadv:.../', allowing the operand to be interpreted as a relative path.

Parsing of 'ftadv' strings in 'pathname' operands has been enhanced to provide greater flexibility.
