guest access to a share in smb.conf ??
Ok, I am using LinNeighborhood and other pc's (win98, XP) can see my computer (Slackware9).
I would like to share a directory so that anyone can access it, ie there is to be NO login for them, just click it and it opens up. I do not want them to be able to write anything to this directory, just be able to see what I have in there, copy stuff from there and just have a look around basically.
I cannot get it setup this way! it always asks for a login and then gives me an error.
here is what I have for my share:
comment = public directory
path = /home/stevo/shared
readonly = yes
guest ok = yes
browseable = yes
public = yes
guest account = nobody
I then went and created the directory /home/stevo/shared and put stuff in it.
Is this correct? What do I have to change/add?
(This seems like an ongoing problem on this forum, so I'd like to make this the thread with all the answers...)
