For administrative clients, you can establish a secure connection by including the -secure option when you invoke the imqcmd command: for example,
imqcmd list svc -b hostName:portNumber -u adminName -secure
where adminName is a valid entry in the Message Queue user repository. The command will prompt you for the password. (If you are using a flat-file repository, see Changing the Default Administrator Password).
Listing the connection services is a way to verify that the ssladmin service is running and that you can successfully make a secure administrative connection, as shown in the following output:
