Thanks for your help on this...

QPWDLVL is set to 0 (zero).

I've tried both all upper and all lower case passwords (no mixed case),
nether seemed to work.

My password is 6 characters long.

We do not have a WINS server here. Also, no Windows servers. The only
server we have is the iSeries.

The PC and iSeries are in the same domain (or workgroup in this case I
guess).

QNTC can make use of the Windows Domain name and any WINS servers
configured for Netserver....

According to this doc, Netserver needs to be running to use QNTC:

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas1aea450153eebf8ff8625670f0072550f

But I think that's really for automatic discovery of Windows
servers...esp given this statement in the above link: "Note: If the
IBM I NetServer or iSeries NetServer is not configured for the same
domain as the Windows Server that you are attempting to access, you
can obtain assistance under a consulting agreement."

What's you're password level (QPWDLVL) set to on the i?

How long is your windows password and is it upper, lower or mixed case?

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.

Incorrect....

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
functionality...

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

to Windows on that PC - what matters is the user ID and password
which
NetServer is using to login to that PC.
