I have a different solution.  Buy a Synology, such as my DS209, and enjoy freely mixing protected and anonymous shares. :)  This obviously can be done on a Linux based box.  FWIW, I can do the same thing in every version of Windows, including Windows 7, so this is not a Windows limitation either.

This forum is turning in to a Synology advert!  :)

You can run, but you can't hide!  :D

I tried this and it does not seem to work for mewent through it several time and am sure I did as you said...  not sure what I'm missing.


I created a fun_plug start up script named smbfix.sh to make this samba configuration change persist after reboot. The script itself is quite simple:

#!/ffp/bin/sh

# PROVIDE: smbfix
# REQUIRE: LOGIN

sed -i 's/^security = USER/security = SHARE/g' /etc/samba/smb.conf
smb restart


For people who are not familiar with Unix scripting, what this script does is simply replacing "security = USER" to "security = SHARE" in smb.conf file, then restart samba.

To make this script work I have Fonz funplug 0.5 installed, after that really the only thing I have to do is to drop this script to /ffp/start, then make it executable (run "chmod +x smbfix.sh").

Make SURE you have created this with a Unix compatible editor that does NOT put CR/LF after each line.

Any news in this? I'm still running 1.07 because I have only one share (movies, pictures and music) with "all user" = RO and one local user in nas = RW to the same share only for update content. With this configuration there is no problem browsing without password prompts from any windows client (clean installations) or mediaplayers with smb/cifs support. Fw 1.08 and nothing works...  >:(

How difficult can it be to just create another user that has access to it? My media streamer has it's own user account on the NAS and it uses that. I don't see what the fuss is about.

Because I have a wife, young kids and maybe a player not so user friendly? I have another nas (etrayz, not so user friendly like dns-323, I love gui) and manage to fix this issue with winscp, changing access rights in linux file system, maybe it will work here also?

You can set permissions on the Xtreamer if you're in that camp :)
Great product, not so great company/forum moderators btw.

Bummer!!!  Count me in on the "add this feature back" column.  I upgraded my firmware to allow for an expansion to 2 TB drives, and now my folder and security structure is alll messed up.  Please bring it back!

This issue needs to be fixed!  >:( Put it back like fw 1.07 or at least let us choose easly in gui!!!  >:( I have tried changing SECURITY to SHARE like suggested but can't get it to work like before. I MUST have anonymous access (read-only) without prompting for username/password and user access (read-write) for updating content on the same shares.

Bump!, I just moved up to 1.4 and I ran into this problem, any chance that the option will be in FW 1.5?

+1 vote as long as it does not cause security side effects.

And we don't want synology, thank you very much.
