Check out Open Source WinAppDriver UI Recorder

A new open-sourced tool is now available for the Windows Application Driver (WinAppDriver) community: the WinAppDriver UI Recorder tool. This tool will enable users to easily create automated UI tests.
For those of you not familiar with WinAppDriver, it is a UI automation service for Windows 10 that users can use to test their applications.

Setting Up SSH Daemon on IBM i to Use Port Other Than 22

Log on to a 5250 session on your IBM i system. 

Edit the SSH Daemon config file.

On V7R3 the edit command would look as follows:

edtf '/QOpenSys/QIBM/UserData/SC1/OpenSSH/etc/sshd_config'

Once the edit screen comes up it may look as follows: 

# $OpenBSD: sshd_config,v 1.75 2007/03/19 01:01:29 djm Exp $               
# This is the sshd server system-wide configuration file.  See             
# sshd_config(5) for more information.                                     
# This sshd was compiled with PATH=/QOpenSys/usr/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/QOpenSys
# The strategy used for options in the default sshd_config shipped with    
# OpenSSH is to specify options with their default value where             
# possible, but leave them commented.  Uncommented options change a        
# default value.                                                           
 Port 2022                                                                 

Add a new entry for the new port. Ex: Port 2022 and comment (#) the od entry if not already commented. 

After adding the port entry for port 2022, you can press F3 to save and exit the config file editor.

Stop and restart the SSH daemon with the following commands

Wait 10 seconds

Run the following command to make sure port 2022 is active:


If you see local port 2022 is active then you should be able to log in to the SSH server on port 2022. 

     Remote           Remote     Local
