So what is the relationship between Netserver and QNTC? Do I care about
Netserver if I'm only trying to access a shared folder on a PC?

When I first set this up, under XP and V5R4, I did nothing on the iSeries
to get it to work. I simply created the shared folder on my PC and gave
read/write rights to all. My PC appeared when running the WRKLNK command
and option 5 showed the shared folder which I could write to.

Now, under Windows 7 and V7R1, I don't see any shares at all. I changed my
PC user id and password to be the same as the one I am using to sign in
(using i Access for Windows) to the iSeries and although I can see my PC
when doing a WRKLNK, I still cannot see any shared folders. There are no
messages of any kind on the iSeries or in the Windows 7 event log.

Is there anything that one can look at to determine if the iSeries is even
"connecting" to the PC when one enters a 5 on the WRKLNK screen? The only
time I get an error is when I do a MKDIR '/QNTC/PC/FOLDER' and I get the
CPFA09C error. FOLDER is the name of the shared folder on the Windows 7 PC.

And I suppose I should point out that

Netserver == the IBM i built in SMB Server
QNTC == the IBM i built in SMB Client

We are really talking about QNTC. It's separate from Netserver really.

Netserver doesn't have a user ID and password assigned to it It uses
the user ID and password of the user attempting to use the netserver

Perhaps you're thinking of NFS? That does allow you to specify a user
ID and password when you mount the network share...

I've gotten around the limitations of Netserver by submitting the job
under a special user ID that matches the Windows PC.

All I am saying is that it matters not the user id which YOU use to
sign in
to Windows on that PC - what matters is the user ID and password which
NetServer is using to login to that PC.
