No real guest access to samba share possible


Hi,

I've got a problem with the access to the samba server shares from computers (Win and Linux) on the network, since I updated samba to version 3.0.20b (Suse Linux). The config files are the same as before.
Before I could access the shares without username/password. Now it only works with username/password.

Here is the global part of my smb.conf:
[global]
workgroup = test
encrypt passwords = No
map to guest = Bad User
guest ok = Yes
guest account = nobody
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
unix password sync = Yes
server signing = auto
printcap cache time = 750
printcap name = cups
add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -c Machine -d /var/lib/nobody -s /bin/false %m$
logon path = \\%L\profiles\.msprofile
logon drive = P:
logon home = \\%L\%U\.9xprofile
domain master = No
ldap ssl = no
printer admin = @ntadmin, root, administrator
cups options = raw
include = /etc/samba/dhcp.conf

and here is the share that does not work:
[testshare]
path = /testshare
read only = No
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777
inherit permissions = Yes
guest ok = Yes

What do I have to change to get access to testshare without passwords again?

Thanks

I presume you're going to allow writing to the share since you have a create mask. Try adding the following to the share:
public = Yes
writeable = Yes

Cheers
