Help URGENT : Password for IPC$ and public shares

I configured a samba server with guest account = nobody and security =
user (i need that)
nobody has no password (* in /etc/passwd)

I want to have a public printer share, but when trying to connect to it,
it asks for password for the share (same when trying to browse the
computer for IPC$).

I read archives, and notice the solution is to set security = share
but i need security = user (so users are identified with /etc/passwd ....)

is there a solution for this?
