I am trying to set samba up such that: there is one shared user account that can read-only browse one dir. I have:
changed security = share to security = user
I have commented out guest account = nobody
added a samba user & password with smbpasswd
This is the dir entry in samba:
[test] comment = is this working? public = no path = /thedir/home/ veto files = /.*/ browseable = yes guest ok = no username = theusername read only = yes
Despite all of these attempts, when I try to open the dir via Windows explorer I get the same greyed out 'servername\Guest' box?!? Without resorting to active directory, is there any way I can have this prompt work with the shared un & pw I am trying to setup?
Thanks in advance.
