Question RedHat9 Samba conf

I am trying to set up Samba on a machine that will basically be a file server in an AD domain. I have the samba box set up and running, however when I browse to the samba server, it prompts me for a username and password.

Here is my conf:


workgroup = [my domain name]
server string = whatever
security = DOMAIN
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
domain logons = yes

comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writeable = yes
valid users = %S
create mode = 0664
directory mode = 0775
comment = Public
path = /var/pub
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes
browseable = yes
public = yes

I am trying to get it so the user doesn't have to enter a username or password.

I think you will need to set:

and insert a "password server" value. You can get more info using:
man smb.conf
