[Samba] problem with basic file serving

Have you a guest account?
Something like ftp would do.
Then, have guest ok = yes in your shares.

Something like this:
[ global ]
security = share
guest account = ftp
[ MyShare ]
guest ok = yes
read only = no

Now, if you really mean unrestrictive:  
guest account = root
(not recommended)

> How can I make my Samba file server unrestrictive? I want to put it on my Microsoft domain network, giving everyone full access to the data. I have created the share and set the permissions to SHARE level and regardless of what I do it requires a password for each PC and USER. What can I do to correct this? I have no desire to make this server a member of the existing domain.
