I desperately need assistance here. I've post some messages in the past but have been unsuccessful in fixing my problem.

I have a samba share setup on a unix machine (OpenBSD i386 v3.1). The share is a public share available to everyone on the network and does not require a username and password.

Presently the samba share always seem to prompt the client to enter a username and password. Why? It shouldn't be asking for anything at all. On Windows 2000 you just hit the Okay button on the dialog and everything works fine. But on Windows XP it has the Okay button grayed out and what username and password would I give since it doesn't require a username and password.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Here's my configuration of this specific Samba share. I'm using Samba v2.2.3a. Maybe I'm using the wrong account www I dunno.. help please <G>.

[storage]
comment = Storage (public files)
writable = yes
path = /usr/files/storage
guest ok = yes
guest only = yes
guest account = www
browsable = yes

Change

security = user

to

security = share

PS. I wouldn't actually do that given the config you have.
