OK.  Are NetServer and the windows box in the same domain or workgroup?
If they are different it becomes difficult to impossible to see NetServer.
OpsNav (or our DSPSMBSVRA command) will show you the current domain name
for NetServer.  You can see the PC domain/workgroup name from the Network
icon in the windoze Control Panel under the identification tab.

Frequently you can find NetServer by using the windoze "Find Computer"
option.  I don't use windoze so I'm doing this from memory.  Bring up the
Find Computer panel (from the Start bar but other places expose it too),
type the NetServer name into the entry box.  The default NetServer name is
the same as your system name with a Q prefix.  Note that if it's a new box
and you changed the system name but didn't change NetServer at the same
time the NetServer name may be Q followed by your serial number.  OpsNav
(or our DSPSMBSVRA command) will show you the current name.  The message
sent by NetServer to QSYSOPR when it starts also shows the name.  Then
let Find Computer go off and search for it.

Once you have located NetServer it usually appears in the Network
Neighbourhood panel although you may have to open the correct
domain/workgroup to find it.

If you are using WINS servers in your SMB network then you may also have
to set the WINS and SCOPE values properly in NetServer before you can see
NetServer.  OpsNav (or our CHGSMBSVRA command) will let you do this.
Either method requires that you end NetServer and restart it in order to
use the new definitions.

Also: you do have Windoze Networking installed on the PC don't you?  And
the PC must be configured for NetBIOS over TCP (TCPBEUI) rather than
native NetBios (NETBEUI).

Also: make sure you are current on PTFs.  NetServer is the buggiest piece
of crap to come out of IBM in a very long time.  If you don't have the
right PTFs it will never work.
