Description Daniel Leewen 2008-04-07 18:34:50 UTC
I have "dist-upgraded" my Debian (unstable/Sid) Machine and installed Samba 3.2.0 pre2.
My "old" Samba-Installation was working fine, but the new Version is not able to Handle "Guest" Accounts properly.
Every time when i try to access the Samba-Share, Windows (WinXP Pro. (32 Bit), SP2) keeps asking for a Password.

I do not think this is a config/Firewall issue, because my "smb.conf" was working fine with the "old" Version.

It seems, like no share is available anymore, "smbclient -L localhost -U%" outputs :
============[ testparm output ]===================
Domain=[EXIL] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.2.0pre2]
Receiving SMB: Server stopped responding
tree connect failed: Call timed out: server did not respond after 20000 milliseconds

"testparm" outputs is :
