If the unix user has no access to the share on the unix filesystem.
Samba will not have any access either.

> drwxr-xr-x 4 userx   users    4096 2008-02-02 18:33 pub2/
This looks fine.

> What is important !!!
> Windows Workstations from witch I try to login hasnt account "userx".
> The Windows enviroment is only workgroup. And each station has its own login.
> Each time someone want to access /pub2 then window asking for login and passwd should apear.
Can you post your smb.conf?
