You must have a logon and password to access samba just as you must enter a login and password to get onto Linux directly.
By default the samba server will authenticate users by looking them up in a samba password file. This file is here
To create a samba authentication entry use the "smbpasswd" command -a(add) option and put your username as the argument. (This is the same user name you have created to log into Linux).
# smbpasswd -a <your login here> New SMB password: Retype SMB password:
I don't know a way to bypass the login password requirement. It can be made simple and non-personal by creating a guest account and password. You'll need to put the shared folder in that directory of course.
Also use the chmod command to allow use by anyone.
chmod 777 <shared folder name>If (exoskeleton || (green && wiggles)) eat_it();
