Zend Studio displays a message similar to this:
Failed to connect sshd on "<some ip address>"
Any version of Zend Studio connecting to IBM i 6.1 or higher.
A failure to connect to SSH on the IBM i partition may mean you need to start or restart SSH.
From the 5250 command line:
Look for one or more jobs named 'QP0ZSPWP' running function 'PGM-sshd'. The job name 'QP0ZSPWP' can be used for other things, so do verify that the function is 'PGM-sshd'.
Subsystem/Job User Type CPU % Function
QUSRWRK QSYS SBS .0
QP0ZSPWP QSECOFR BCI .0 PGM-sshd
QSCLICEV QSYS BCH .0
QSCWCHMS QUSER BCH .0
If the job is there, end it by running this command from the command line in the 'Work with Active Jobs' display:
Verify the job is no longer running by using F5 in the 'Work with Active Jobs' display until the job has ended. In some cases, you may see a job that won't end, and will have to force it down with endjob or even endjobabn.
If the job was not there, or you ended it, then run this command to start it:
Verify the job is now running by using F5 in the 'Work with Active Jobs' display until the job displays.
Once the job is verified, retry the connection in Zend Studio. If the connection is still not working, please continue with the following articles:
