The documentation is typically myopic - "IBM only" stuff is discussed. QNTC works with any NT+ boxes it can discover. And you can manually mount others that may not show up automatically. I forget the rules for discovery - different levels of MS networking work differently.

Look up QNTC in InfoCenter or at the iSeries support site (better, IMO). At the latter, just click on the search button without entering anything, then go looking for QNTC. Software knowledge base articles show up here, as well as InfoCenter stuff, etc.

There's also been quite a lot in the archives of this list.

I'm trying to copy a file from an AS/400 to a standalone NT 4.0 box.
Drilling down the /QNTC tree via OpsNav, I see entries for our integrated
x-series server, a standalone W2K box, some directories shared from the
AS/400, and my PC which is running XP Pro.  When reading about the /QNTC
file system (iSeries Info Center), I get the impression that /QNTC is
supposed to only support xSeries servers (integrated and/or externally
connected).  If that's true, the other boxes shouldn't be showing up.
However, based on what I'm actually seeing, I would expect the NT 4.0 box to
also show up.  Can anyone explain this?
