Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I just upgraded Ubuntu server to 14.04 which took samba up to 4.1.6. My public share (local home network so not worried about security so much as family getting to files simply and anonymously), has stopped working, i.e. it will now ask for username and password.

when I run testparm I get:

Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384)
Processing section "[share]"
Loaded services file OK.

I can not seem to get my windows (W7) machine to be able to anonymously access the share. Not sure what is wrong with my config here.
