Actual Results:  From Windws PC, samba server can be found, however, 
to access the samba server, the user name and password is required 
(dialog box opens).
So input the user name ["guest"] and password [""], but the same 
dialog box comes up again and again.

Expected Results:  After input the user name ["guest"] and password 
[""], Share folder should open

I also have problem with Samba access in security=share mode. After
upgrade from Samba 3.0.2 to 3.0.3 password is required for all shares
even with guest acces enabled. So I cannot make a share readable from
all machines in the subnet.
Comment 2 dexterthrowaway 2004-05-31 13:41:38 EDT
Same for me. Copied a working "security=share" config from FC1 to FC2.
Can no longer allow Windows, or other Linux machines, access to my
laptop without having to enter a password. Note that when accessing
from a Windows machine that has the same username and password,
browsing and access shares is not a problem.
Comment 3 dexterthrowaway 2004-06-08 10:06:27 EDT
Would like to add that this is a bug in Samba 3.0.3. Is fixed in
3.0.4. Bugzilla report is at:


Hoping for an update.
Comment 4 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-06-12 12:06:49 EDT
An update for FC 1 was released a day or two ago. What about an update
for FC 2? There's not one to be found even under "testing" in the ftp
Comment 5 Chan Min Wai 2004-06-20 15:24:36 EDT
The update is already there, anyone is there can make an release?

Thank You

FC2 is no longer maintained by RedHat, an update might be available in Fedora
Legacy project.
