I would like to enable the guest account for a samba share on OSMC installed on a Raspberry Pi 2. I’ve been searching for a solution for way too long and trying everything I could, without success. This is really irritating as there are tons of tutorials, but none of them has worked. Even this forum has not helped unfortunately.
What I’m looking for is a proven method to add a samba share, accessible without username and password. This on a vanilla OSMC install, samba server has been installed form the app store on OSMC.
The computer I want to access it from is a Mac running OSX 10.10.4.
I can access the share using
osmc for username/password, but this is not what I want.
smb-shares.conf file looks like that:
[Media] path = /media/Media guest ok = yes writable = no browsable = yes guest_ok = yes
smb.conf has not been modified, as it seems an update will wipe the modifications.
When I execute
sudo net usershare info I systematically get this as a response:
[Media] path=/media/Media comment=Auto-mount Volume usershare_acl=OSMC\osmc:F, guest_ok=n
As you can see the guest is not allowed. Why is this? I have enabled the guest account on the share. Although I have never defined a new account for guest, none of the tutorials I saw mentioned that, is that required maybe?
I can see the Media share from my computer, but when I try to access it I get the following message:
As said before, I can access the contents with
osmc credentials, but it’s not what I’m after. I’m so fed up with this problem and my last resort is to ask here.
