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 userName -secure
where userName is a valid ADMIN entry in the Message Queue user repository. The command will prompt you for the 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 Example 9–6.
