Indeed it's the case.
But I want every user to be able to browse this share - but this is not
possible as it seems that to access this share I have to access server
first (as a valid user).
As I'm logged onto that workstation as an Administrator (Administrator
of that PC, not logged into a domain), I get something like that into
the logs - when I double click on a Server icon in a Network Neighbourhood:
check_ntlm_password: Checking password for unmapped user
[PC007]\[Administrator]@[PC007] with the new password interface
[2004/11/17 21:05:57, 3] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(222)
check_ntlm_password: Authentication for user [Administrator] ->
[root] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_WRONG_PASSWORD
If I try to access it from Explorer like \\server\myshare - Windows
complains that there is no such object (?), with Samba logs similar to

So this is rather useful for me, right (as I have to still supply password).
Any more hints?
