Dear Samba Experts,

after browsing the mailing list archives for some time I still do
not have a solution for the following problem:

I recently set up the Samba Server Version 2.0.5a on a SuSE-Linux 6.0 PC
(Kernel 2.0.36).

Whenever I try to reach the shares on this machine from Windows 95 or
Windows NT machines (with different user-names) in our Network, 
by double-clicking on the servername in the 'networkneighbourhood', 
I am asked for the IPC$ - password (on 95) or for username and password
(on NT), before beeing able to see the shares.

Here is my smb.conf :

        workgroup = MPCH-PC
        server string = Samba 2.0.5a on Linux 2.0.36
        interfaces =
        security = share
        encrypt passwords = No
        keepalive = 30
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY
        os level = 2
        guest ok = Yes

        comment = Linux CD-ROM
        path = /cd
        locking = No

        comment = All Printers
        path = /tmp
        create mask = 0700
        print ok = Yes
        browseable = No

        path = /home/joeckel/open

What am I doing wrong ?
Any help is appreciated !
