Receiving a cryptic message of Permissions error

I just started using "Express Client" with Client Access/400. Documents that were formerly in shared folders are now accessible thru "File Shares". I'm unable to do a "SAVE AS" with these documents now. Instead I get a cryptic message of Permissions error. What am I missing? I'm at the latest CUM on V4R5 on the AS/400. The PC's are new Dells.

In order to access shares on the AS/400 with CA Express you must set up netserver as described here.

Do remember that if you set up guest user profile the guest user profile must be added to the directory entry (ADDDIRE) in order to work with shared folders.
