Thank you for you reply, but I'd like to configure my new samba4 server
with the very simplest configuration for anonymous login with read/write
access to everyone on my LAN initially.

Could someone perhaps post an incredibly simple smb.conf file that would
offer that kind of functionality?

I did look at the wiki, but all of the articles under
<https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_as_a_File_Server> (which seems
like the article that is closest to my needs initially) assume that this
kind of functionality already exists; whereas I don't have (even) that yet.

I totally agree. I'm not trying to interoperate between v2 and v4. I was
just making an observation before in my original post.
