Basic Samba Config (smb.conf) for Windows 7 Guest sharing

This global section of the smb.conf, in my case, is the bare minimum to get started with simple guest/anonymous access to their Samba box to Windows 7 clients.


netbios name = [server name here]
workgroup = [workgroup name here]
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
guest account = nobody
map to guest = Bad User
smb passwd file = /var/etc/private/smbpasswd  #Not needed. I bet default value of smb passwd file would work also
private dir = /var/etc/private #Same here. Default value should work.
passdb backend = tdbsam
idmap config * : backend = tdb
idmap config * : range = 10000-39999
