I suspect this is more of a WinXP issue, but since it drives me mad,
I'll ask anyway.
What I want:
In Windows XP network neighborhood, select my samba server, select one
of the shares, then have a dialog asking me for the respective
Samba-username & -password to access the share.
What I get:
I get a dialog with the username "Guest", greyed out, asking me for a
WHY does XP always assume I want to access the share as "Guest"? Can I
disable this behavior somehow?
What I tried:
- set requiresignorseal = 0 in XP registry
- set security to SHARE in smb.conf
- disabled XP simple file sharing
- registered the username/password combo with samba using smbpasswd
Has anyone had this problem before? Any suggestions? Thank you very much,
