I am trying to allow anyone to access a particular directory on a Linux
box. Chances are they are going to be a Windows user which will not be
a Unix user that has been added on said box. That is, the Linux box
will have no idea who they are. In smb.conf there is the line:
# Uncomment this if you want a guest account, you must add this to
# otherwise the user "nobody" is used
guest account = pcguest
which I have uncommented. Not clear on what they mean by 'must add this
to /etc/passwd' after all the whole point is we don't know what the
user OR password is up front.
Anyone know what I need to do to allow anyone to connect and have access
to a particular public directory.
