Rational Developer for i (RDi), the modern editor for IBM i RPG, COBOL and other languages, runs on Windows and Linux, but not Mac.

IBM has shown some willingness to port the product to Mac. They have posted a poll to allow users to vote for this enhancement or to comment on the proposal: https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=13454

Alan Seiden Consulting: PHP and IBM i Expertise › Overcome 8-character user profile limit in SSH for IBM i

February 6th, 2015 Comments off

By default, user profiles longer than eight (8) characters cannot connect to IBM i via Secure Shell (SSH). This limitation affects tools such as Zend Studio, which will show a message similar to “Failed to connect sshd on “<some ip address>.” Beginning with IBM i release 6.1, however, IBM provided a means of removing this limitation, so that user profiles longer than 8 characters could connect. Releases 6.1 and 7.1 require a PTF and a configuration change; release 7.2 and higher require only the configuration change.

For details, see  Zend Support specialist Rod Flohr’s article about how to remove the 8-character limit on user profiles when connecting via SSH.
