Hello everyone

I have just configured samba and it is working fine, the only problem that i have face when i go to access some sharing on samba server it asking me about password but the problem is that its username option is embossed. By default it will login as guest but i dont know the guest password.

Check your /etc/samba/smb.conf file. If it looks like this:

# This boolean parameter controls whether Samba attempts to sync the Unix
# password with the SMB password when the encrypted SMB password in the
# passdb is changed.
unix password sync = yes

Then your passwords will be the same as the system passwords. You may want to edit the smb.conf file and set guest ok=yes for your shares so you don't have to worry about passwords.

IMHO samba is a pain to configure correctly.

Also see this topic http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ssword-606965/
