Samba Headache: Guest works, but authenticated users don's


Hello, I am trying to share a simple folder on my linux box with a few computers.

I am able to go from any computer who does not have a user name that matches my linux computer. So for example, if I have user joe with password joe on my linux computer, joe on windows get's a popup asking for username and password, even though his windows password matches. If he types in joe and joe it doesn't work.

I just want everyone to have access, no matter the password. Here is my smb.conf file:

Code:
[global]

   workgroup = WORKGROUP
   server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
   dns proxy = no

   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
   max log size = 1000
   syslog = 0
   panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d


   usershare allow guests = yes

#======================= Share Definitions =======================

[700-Shares]
   comment = Users profiles
   path = media/700GB/700-Shares/
   force guest = yes
   security = share
   writable = yes
   public = yes
-Thanks for any help

Ok, I figured it out. It needs to look like this:


Quote:
[global]

workgroup = workgroup
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
dns proxy = no

log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 1000
syslog = 0
panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d

usershare allow guests = yes
security = share
guest ok = yes
guest account = put_account_name_here

#======================= Share Definitions =======================

[700-Shares]
comment = 700-Shares
path = /media/700GB/700-Shares
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes
