What is the method to granting "authority" to the share and all
folders/directories within this QNTC share?
It's the Windows computer that you're connecting to (not the i5/OS /QNTC
directory) that needs to grant the appropriate authority.
One solution that folks seem to use frequently is profile swapping...
they'll create a user profile on the Windows box, and create an
identical one on the System i. When they need to access the share,
they'll use the profile swapping (profile handle or profile token) APIs
to switch to that userid, do the file access, then switch back.
But if your job always runs under QTMHHTP1, then you might just add a
user named QTMHHTP1 to the Windows machine (with the same password that
he has on i5/OS) and give him access to the appropriate directories on
the Windows machine...
Other possibilities (aside from the two above) include using smbclient
from the Samba project (running under PASE), and setting up single-sign
on... but these are probably overkill.
