I think testparm just spits stuff out that way. Everything is lowercase in the conf file. I also discovered, and I need to verify this, that testparm only dumps non-default definitions which would explain why some of the results are omitted.

Here are the settings for the share: [Shares] path = /home/shares browsable = yes available = yes read only = no public = yes writable = yes guest ok = yes If I add force user = nobody it breaks and I can't access the share at all. Here's where it get's weird though; when I run testparm it dumps [Shares] path = /home/shares read only = no guest ok = yes So for some reason it's like it isn't seeing the public, writeable, available and browseable definitions. Could this be an indicator of where the problem is.

Hey Bryce, Thanks for answering. I've managed to make a little progress since my original question but I'm still essentially having the same issue. I've managed to get my share (I'm calling it Shares) configured so that anyone on the workgroup, defined in the global seettings in smb.conf, can get right to it - No password necessary.
