I do not want to restrict it, just make sure that everybody has access, 
even if that default may change at some point in the future. But 
currently I cannot even see how the share permissions are set.

I'm surprised that "valid users" still works in active directory mode. 
This means there are three items which can restrict access:
- "valid users" in the share definition
- share permissions in computer-management (which I cannot access)
- file system ACLs
