Except that with this enabled I still get the IPC$ prompt when I try to connect

I belive this is implemented on WinNT by enabling the guest account,
which the user will be logged in with *if* the username supplied does
not exist. same as map to guest = bad user.

I am proud to say that in this respect I know how to do something in Samba
I can't seem to make NT do.  I want to give Guest access to a share.  Guest
meaning someone who does not have a user account and therefore is a guest of
machine.  I can do this with Samba, but have not had any luck doing it in NT
Server 4.0 SP6a.  I realize that this is a little off topic but would like
help if anyone knows how to make this happen.  I think I am doing everything
way I should but would like to see how someone else is doing to reference

Thank you,

Chris Tooley
