Gary, I think what he is trying to say is that this functionality still
exists, but you need to use different samba config options to make it work.
Please see the following wiki (which I referenced for you on the samba
If you post your config (you can use XXX as masking if you need to hide

as I know all the functionality of "security = share" still exists, though
it works a bit differently now.
