Just a wild guess: check the length of the Windows folder name.
If I remember correctly, the first folder on the windows PC must
be shared and be 8 or less characters in length.
No guarantee, I slept last night.

Subject: Re: QNTC and Windows 7 Shares
Both the PC and the iSeries are in the same workgroup. I do see the PC when I do an option 5 on QNTC.
I did create a user on the iSeries with the same user id and password as the PC. Didn't seem to make any difference.
From what I can see, everything has read/write authority. I had another
fellow in IT access the shared folder on my PC via Windows Explorer and he was able to view a file I had in the folder.

The only relationship I have noticed between Netserver and QNTC is in
the Netserver setup you specify what domain to broadcast shares to.
I find this correlates to what will just show up when you do a 5 on QNTC.
I find that if I am trying to connect to a system outside of that
specified domain things work better if I use the IP address of the
target system when doing a MKDIR.
I also sometimes have to create a local user on the target system with
the same profile and password as the windows domain user and it will
In my experience the most common problems are actually the windows
Check authority on the share AND the windows folder you are sharing,
make sure 'everyone' has read access.
When you get it working you can try removing authority until it stops
make sure your windows password is lower case
