An iSeries user is denied access to \\iSeries\QIBM

To ensure we install the latest Client Access, we began installing it on users PCs by going to Start > Run > \\\QIBM.  Unfortunately, when another IT tech attempts to install Client Access while he is logged on to the PC, he is denied access.  When he's on a Windows 7 machine, he receives a Network Error message saying "You do not have permission to access \\iSeries\QIBM. Contact your network admin to request access."  On an XP machine, he's prompted and enters his credentials but prompt returns immediately.  We explicitly granted him full authority to access QIBM, but still no success.  His iSeries user class is QSYSOPR.  His password contains only letters and numbers, with the first letter being upper case.  He is the only user being denied access.  Share permissions on QIBM are "Public: Read & Execute".  Our system security level is 40.

Any ideas?

Mixed-case passwords from Win7 to AS/400 NetServer are a problem in certain cases:

1) What is the AS/400 system value QPWDLVL set to?
2) If not, do his Windows and AS/400 usernames match?
3) Are you certain his AS/400 password matches his Windows password?  Reset both to be sure.
4) Is he logged in to Windows using a domain account or a local account?
5) Is the AS/400 a member of the domain? (Check the Netserver configuration.  Google "netserver configuration").
