Getting share list without password.

samba-1.9.18p8 using security = user. All the stuff runs good. But I want a
cosmetic customization.

I want to be able to get the list of shares on the linux box w/out having to
fill in a password (same as winBoxes do):

smbclient -L linuxbox -U user -N

Should not prompt for password. But in fact, it does. I supposed this could be
produced by a wrong guest account. I have 'guest account = nobody' and here's
the password nobody's entry:


Is this a valid guest account for samba purposes? If not, what might be failing?
