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:

[public]
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...)

Thanks.

Try:
[public]
comment = public directory
path = /home/stevo/shared
public = yes
guest account = nobody

Also make sure that the user "nobody" has read and execute access on the directory.
