[Solved] Samba problems

Hi, I have been using this smb.conf: http://pastie.org/private/crip7qeshpib4b4uuymowq for a while and everything is working fine. I want everyone on my network to have read / write access to those directories without a password or anything.

As of an update a couple days ago (current version is 3.6.13) this no longer works as expected. I can see the shares, but I can't open them. XBMC asks for a username / password and my Windows 7 computer says that I do not have permission to access the folder.

Samba also appears to be running correctly.

[phil@fml ~]$ sudo systemctl status smbd.service

Re: [Solved] Samba problems

security = share option has been deprecated. I went through this yesterday with my samba server also, I followed this to get it working again.

I tried following the steps but was unsuccessful. Do you mind sharing your smb.conf ?

EDIT:
I figured it out:

[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = PhilFileServer
security = user
guest account = phil
map to guest = bad user

[Downloads]
path = /home/phil/downloads
guest ok = yes
read only = no
