revised Can the encryption option with zip on Linux when used from the command line?
I added the comment to tell people that it is copyright but I think that most users who encounter this problem won't search for Info-ZIP but will commonly call the command zip.

N.b. The zip command on Redhat is copyright Info-ZIP.

@ChrisS I guess there is a free OpenSSL client for windows too. The zipped files will be sent to an FTP server to be picked up by a Windows user. The encryption is mainly just to avoid a casual user from accidentally peeking into the file.

Does IOMeter come with a command line version, the screenshots suggest it is a GUI application.

comment How would the outside world access my machine?
The key point is open a port on the Internet side of your router in the NAT settings area and redirect that to the 8125 port on your PC on the LAN side of the router. Your PC on the LAN side will have been assigned an IP other than the local host IP i.e. not 127.0.0.1 something like 10.*.*.* or 192.168.*.*. If you are using a LAN IP address assigned by the router, you might want to consider using a static IP address in case your PC's IP address changes.
