Description tombert 2014-11-04 10:04:51 UTC
The setting "restrict anonymous = 2" prevents accessing IPC$ share as guests from Windows (7) hosts. It works when trying to connect from linux hosts.

The error message in the samba log then is:
guest user (from session setup) not permitted to access this share (IPC$)

Also trying the following in smb.conf does not help:
        guest ok = yes
        restrict anonymous = 1

What works is to lesser the security settings (from 2 to 1) in the global section:
restrict anonymous = 1

Might also be a feature and not a bug ...
