2008-02-04 22:36:45 Simon Ruggier description In /etc/samba/smb.conf, we should set ;security = user to security = share So samba isn't such a PITA for a normal user. The reason I am reporting this is because if you don't do that, setting up shares with gnome (right click folder, "share folder") will not work properly. The windows computer will not be able to reach the said folder. For a given share created in the GNOME GUI, the resulting stanza in smb.conf looks like the following: [foo] path = /home/bar/baz/foo available = yes browsable = yes public = yes writable = no The expected result of such a stanza is a passwardless public share, whether it was created in the GUI or manually added to smb.conf. It already works properly like that when accessed from Nautilus, but when a Windows XP client accesses the share, a username/password prompt appears. Adding "map to guest = Bad User" to smb.conf (as mentioned in the comments) allows Windows XP clients to access these public shares without being prompted, without breaking the security model for nonpublic shares.
