Smile mounted share access question

Please be patient with this issue when you read it. I know it's a little tricky.

I have a new share created on my SUSE 10 box. I'm trying to edit the /etc/fstab file or find a way to make this share needs no authentication.
The reason for that is we're using an outside application to access this share on our SUSE box, but this external application has no place to add/configure user/password and is treating my SUSE box as a NAS device, so my share on SUSE must allow any user who can access my SUSE box to read/write to the share.

Here's my share in /etc/fstab:
/dev/cciss/c0d1p1 on /xyz type xfs (rw,dmapi,mtpt=/xyz,noalign,nobarrier)

Can i edit that? or Is there a way to connect to that share from outside by entering user/pass in the command, such as:


Thanks in advance;

What protocol is required for accessing the share?

If it's NFS, you could export the mounted directory via NFS.

If it's SMB, you could export the mounted directory via samba and make it accessible to the guest user.

If it's FTP, you could use a passwordless account.

Or perhaps it's something else? (Or I may have misunderstood you.)

If you can give example it would be very helpful.
I believe it's samba (smb)
