OK, the guest user on Windows has absolutely nothing to do with guest
access on a Samba standalone server, so turn Guest off on Windows again.
A guest user on Samba, is any user that is unknown to Samba and provided
that 'map to guest = Bad User' is set in 'global' and 'guest ok = yes'
is set in the share, a guest user will be allowed access to the share.
On a Samba standalone server (which is what you have), to make a user
known, the user must be a Unix user and have been created as a Samba
user with 'smbpasswd -a username' run as root.
Try this smb.conf:
security = user
map to guest = Bad User
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
comment = Public share
path = /home/users
read only = no
guest ok = yes
guest only = yes
admin users = root
valid users = user1, user2, user3, user4, user5
read only = no
This will only allow unknown users access to the 'public' share, any
known users will be denied. The users user1, user2, user3, user4 and
user5 are the only users that will be allowed access to 'nopublic', but
only if they are Unix & Samba users.
