I can not get guest access to work from Windows clients to a linux server.
I am running 3.0.27a
The windows clients are all in a domain and the linux server is not.
I have set security = share and I always get:
"The account is not authorized to log in from this station."
I have tried setting different guest accounts ranging from nobody, a
real user, and even a "Guest" account.
I added all of them to smbpasswd and even tried with a tdbsam backend.
I have tried log level of 3 and 10 and nothing really jumps out at me
as any fatal error.
I guess the question is can a Windows client in a domain access a
linux server that is not in a domain without a password?
