Bug: CIFS client requires password

    I have a server with a share that does not need authentication, so I need tomato to be able to log in to a share without any username and password.

    Thanks :halo:

    I had that problem, My XP box had one user with no password and all my file shares worked well with this user... but Tomato did not connect to it. I made another user just for tomato. Unfortunately know the box does not auto login as it used to.

    You might want to email Jon about this one

    i think that's a cifs requirement rather than a bug. samba shares, for instance, doesn't allow accessing network shares with empty passwords either.

    For the record, samba does allow it.

       path = /pub
       public = yes
       browseable = yes
       guest ok = yes
       read only = no
    Which is exactly why I need tomato to let it happen :)

    I'm not in a rush, next release will do ;)

    If your using XP SP2, try using the Administrator's name & pw (not your id, but the one you had to specify when you installed XP and also use for entry into the Safe Mode). It does not appear under User Accounts in the Control Panel.

    Edit: I thought I'd also try the default XP guest account since I never use it and doesn't have a password. When I tried username "guest" and password "guest" it worked, even without a password setup. You might see it this works.
