Subject: [Samba] guest ok = yes


I've got samba up and running, but I have the guest ok = yes option.
Now I have the book Using Samba by o'reilly, and if I'm correct this setting
should enable be to access the share without using a username/password,
however it doesn't work, then if I enter a valid samba user when it prompts
it works fine!

I've included my smb.conf file, any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm
also new to linux, so could it be something to do with the permissions for
this folder?

            netbios name = THOR
            workgroup = LANGHOLME
            server string = Samba 2.2.7a 

            local master = yes
            os level = 99
            domain master = yes
            preferred master = yes

            encrypt passwords = yes
            security = user

            wins support = yes

            comment = Music Share
            path = /home/share/music
            browseable = yes
            read only = no
            guest ok = yes
