SAMBA on FC4 - Windows keeps prompting for password


I am trying to setup a SAMBA server on FC4 and I can't seem to do it right. I set it up, the share is browsable from localhost, but if try to use a windows box to connect to my samba server, I keep getting a password prompt, although my server is set to accept guests with null passwords.

Help?

Here is my smb.conf:

Code:
[global]

   netbios name = pokedell

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
   workgroup = HOMEOFFICE

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
   server string = PokeDell

   hosts allow = ALL

   guest account = nobody

   log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log

   null passwords = yes

   interfaces = 192.168.1.0/24 10.0.0.0/24

[REMINST]
        path = /media/cdrom
        browsable = yes
        read only = no
        guest ok = yes

[smbshr]
        path=/home/smbshr
        browsable=yes
        guest ok = yes
        guest account = nobody
Thanks!

Hi,
Try to remove these line
[global]
guest account = nobody
null passwords = yes
[REMINST]
guest ok = yes
[smbshr]
guest ok = yes
guest account = nobody

Then add these
[global]
security = share
encrypt passwords = yes
[REMINST]
read only = no
public = yes
[smbshr]
read only = no
public = yes

Plus you have to set permission on share directory to read+write for other user.
Have fun!
J-P

I got it now, the problem was the security level, I've set it like this and it works:

Code:
    security = share

Thanks all!
