Thanks, for the reply.

I did read quite a few HowTo's about joing an AD and setup Samba that way. 
 However, my company's IT department won't give out an LDAP binding user account 
because of their security policies, hence I need the capabilities of anonymous 

Half of my file-sharing project can be solved with SFTP over SSH.  WinSCP for 
Windows is a nice client for it, even though is not well integrated to Windows 

I'm still hoping there's a clever way around the issue.

Join the Samba server to the AD Domain. Use winbindd. There
are lots of HOWTO's available on this.
