Problem generating a triple DES ZPK

I am trying to generate a triple DES ZPK with the following command:


but the response that I get is

xxxxIB26 (meaning "invalid key scheme")

If I issue the equivalent command for "double" DES:


I get a valid response from the simulator:


I suppose it means the simulator can generate only "double" DES ZPKs, not triple DES, is it true? If not, what can I do to generate it? It didn't work for ";YY0" too. I am using the default LMKs for the simulator.

EDIT: it seems odd to me that the HC command works fine with ";TT0"...

Thanks for any help...

I'm thinking you were expecting to get IB00TFD283032AC64ADDCF3A3ECEAE3CF93BC64798351C2F47F8BTBC2DEDD6F50964FFB789DFB0AA37CD9EC613AF0C448267D159B6BBBF952141B1 back...which is very logical. For some reason (which must've looked valid back when I was writing IA but I just can't figure out now), the command explicitly throws 26 if you pass a triple-length key.

Thanks for spotting that, I'll fix it and post an update soon.
