Hi all,
    I had been trying to use "map to guest = bad password" to map users
from other domains to guest to allow only guest access. But when I try
to access the samba server from another domain, I get an error saying
that it is not authorized from that machine. I am attaching the
smb.conf. Please let me know if I am doing anything wrong.
