Hi --

1.  Before I upgraded to version 2.2.1 my users were
able to access the server without entering a 
password.  They only had to enter their password
whenever they tried to access the share.  Just
like connecting to any other NT server.  Now
when someone connects to \\servername they are
immediately prompted for a password.  Any ideas?

2.  Another closely related issue (I think) is
that my customers also used to be able to access
a certain share that has "guest allow = Yes"
without passing.  Now it asks for a password.

Here are my [Global] and guest share entries:

        workgroup = DOMAIN
        netbios name = NAME
        server string = Samba %v on (%L)
        min passwd length = 6
        log level = 1
        log file = /net/adm/samba/samba.log.%L
        local master = No
        wins server =
        homedir map = u_auto
        NIS homedir = Yes
        hosts allow = ###.###.

        comment = Xwire directory
        path = /net/wirelist
        read only = No
        writeable = Yes
        create mask = 0664
        guest ok = Yes
        guest only = Yes
