Description Nate Nielsen 2004-11-26 18:02:27 UTC
When a libsmbclient connection login fails, it tries to automatically login as
guest. If the Guest login succeeds then no error is returned. 

This may be acceptable or handy in some cases, but when building low level file
access (in my case gnome-vfs smb module) based on libsmbclient code, an error
should be propogated back to the caller, instead of automatic Guest login.

Will attach a patch that adds this behavior in an API/ABI compatible way.

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2004-11-29 04:02:00 UTC
This patch is ABI incompatible with another patch that gnome-vfs needs:
(and that e.g. fedora ships)

If this patch goes in we should change the value of the flag so they don't conflict.

Also, it would be nice if the kerberos patch also got in.

Patch compatible with Kerberos patch

Thanks for pointing that out. Attached is a compatible patch.

Any progress on this? Its really important for good support in gnome-vfs.
Gnome-vfs already has code in cvs which relies on this patch if its been applied.
Comment 5 Jeremy Allison 2005-01-24 13:19:35 UTC
I've applied both this and the other outstanding gnome patch.
to make the intent clearer though.
Comment 6 Nate Nielsen 2005-01-24 16:26:24 UTC
Thanks. I've made the necessary changes to gnome-vfs to account for the new
constant name.

originally reported against 3.0.8pre1.  Cleaning up 
non-production versions.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
