CentOS 6.6 x64 Samba 4.0.0-66.el6_6.rc4 (from YUM)
I am trying to create a Samba share on my CentOS server for guests/unauthenticated users. Using the configuration below, when I try to navigate to the share without authenticating, Windows prompts me for a username and password.
The share needs to be invisible when the user navigates to the root (i.e. \myserver) and the only way they can access it is via "\myserver\my_share\". Other shares need to ask the user for a username and password; this is the only share which is to be accessible by guests.
