I thought I would start up a voting topic just to see how many people want this feature back.

I am at a point of buying another NAS box that is not a DNS because of this issue.

I'd vote for it to come back. :)

Is this due to upgrading to 1.08 where you try to connect to the NAS and it asks for a password?  I only noticed this after the upgrade....  Now, what in the world is the GUEST password.  I had to reconfig the shares so it does not ask for the password.

1.07 and 1.08 changed the SAMBA permissions so that if any shares were password protected, you could not have a share that was anonymous and didn't require any password.

This was not the case in earlier versions, you could mix password protected shares and unprotected shares.

It better come back by tomorrow.

The DNS-323 is packed and will be returned to Best Buy tomorrow.

Does anyone at D-Link get this issue at all?

In any case, can't seem to handle massive transfers w/o dropping out - so I doubt that resolving the shares issue will keep me on board.

Am I missing something here? I too would vote if I had the problem, but I have 1.08 with anonymous shares and password protected shares working together.

???

Forgot to say using XP and Ubuntu on all clients.

I'd sure like to see the configuration where anonymous and passworded shares work together.  Even D-Link admitted that was removed from the current version.

I think you're not actually doing that...

Well you can define anonymous and passworded shares in the DNS..
But try to access an anonymous share from XP where the XP Account name is NOT in the DNS-323 user list.

You will be prompted for credentials...

That applies to Vista or Win7 too. :(

Is there a D-link person that can comment on the problem?
