The following /etc/samba/smb.conf file shows an example how to configure a read-only file share with guest access. Two directives are used to configure guest access – <map to guest = Bad user> and <guest account = nobody>.

/etc/samba/smb.conf:

[global]
    workgroup = SAMBA
    security = user
    map to guest = Bad user

[data]
    comment = Anonymous Samba Share
    path = /samba/anon_share
    read only = yes
    guest ok = yes

Anonymous Read-Write Share

/etc/samba/smb.conf:

[global]
    workgroup = SAMBA
    security = user
    map to guest = Bad user

[data]
    comment = Anonymous Samba Share
    path = /samba/anon_share
    guest ok = yes
