Apparently people who do not even have an IBM i account can open up
Windows explorer on their PC and point it to
and see your list of shares. Now, they can't access them without an IBM i
account (unless you set up Guest access). But our Qualys internal
security scan lets us know that this is of some concern because it may be
enough to encourage someone to try a brute force attack to get into them.
They consider this a middle of the road concern.
Is there some way to turn off showing the list of shares to those users
without an IBM i account?
If this was running Windows I could follow the recommendation of the
report and do a couple of steps and it would be done.
