To unzip a password protected file

Hi,

I am trying to unzip a password protected file (eg.file.zip) in windows HP UX.

Can anyone guide me on how to do this.

Thanks in advance

Anu

Re: To unzip a password protected file

To unzip a password-protected file in HP-UX operating system, you'll need a ZIP archive tool.

The "jar" command from a JDK package can be used to unzip regular .ZIP packages, but it might not support passworded .ZIPs.

Here is a real "unzip" command line tool for HP-UX. It should automatically prompt for a password if you're extracting a passworded .ZIP file:

   UnZip 6,0 should do the job for an archive which was made using
Traditional zip encryption.  If you see errors referring to "unsupported
compression method 99", then you have an archive which was made using
AES encryption, which requires a newer (not yet released) version.
(When it's released, UnZip 6.1 should do that job, too.)
