Hi. I have a samba share setup on a unix machine (OpenBSD i386 v3.1).
The share is a public share available to everyone on the network and
does not require a username and password.
Presently the samba share always seem to prompt the client to enter a
username and password. Why? It shouldn't be asking for anything at all.
On Windows 2000 you just hit the Okay button on the dialog and
everything works fine. But on Windows '9x/XP it has the Okay button
grayed out and wants a username and password. I do not want it require a
username and password.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Here's my configuration of this
specific Samba share. I'm using Samba v2.2.3a. Maybe I'm using the wrong
account www I dunno. BTW, I'm using security = user. This is required
because I have other shares that uses the user level security system.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
