Using OpsNav, check the share to see if you set a maximum users.  Can you
see the AS400 under Network Neighborhood?  If so, can you see the printer
shares?  If so, what does the permissions look like for the printers?  I
would recommend creating the share under the Root file system and sharing
it, not the root.  the physical path under OpsNav might be \\AS400\Root\Qpdf
but shared as \\AS400\PDF.  I would drop the Q.  I know it works for I have
several shares setup under the Root, QDLS, QOpenSys and QIBM.  I have never
created a directory in the IFS directly.

Subject: Netserver File Share

I am trying to share an IFS file to my users.
I am on an AS400 720 at V4R3. I have Netserver running with my users signed
on as guest for print sharing.
So it know it works.
I created a file Qpdf in IFS. I went to Ops Nav and shared QPDF by opening
netserver and right click shared objects and adding Qodf. Went to
permissions and gave public authority.
QPDF does not show on Windows Explorer or if I try to map to it. Why?
My system name is Natgroup so I tried \\Natgroup\qpdf and \qpdf. Neither
I am trying this because my users do not have CA. I am creating pdf docs on
400 and want users to view them and print them.
Everything I read says that is the way to do it.
