I have a home server with samba. with windows i can access and make folder(always with permission 777) like guest( no password ) without problem. But with linux, when i mkdir i can not modify this folder again. i lose already 5h to try to fix this please help me

mount my share:

sudo mount -t cifs -o guest // /mnt/3TB

ls -al /mnt/3TB

drwxrwxrwx 16 root root    0 15 apr 18.55 3TB

mkdir test && cd test && ls -al

drwxr-xr-x  2 65534 65534 0 15 apr 19.13 .
drwxrwxrwx 17 root  root  0 15 apr 19.13 ..

65534 is the id for user nobody

        workgroup = SAMBA

        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .

        comment = 2TB
        path = /mnt/2TB
        read only = No
        guest ok = Yes

        comment = 3TB
        path = /mnt/3TB
        read only = No
        create mask = 0777
        directory mask = 0777
        guest ok = Yes

EDIT: seems working if i mount with this argv: operm

Client does not do permission checks. This can expose files on this mount to access by other users on the local client system. It is typically only needed when the server supports the CIFS Unix Extensions but the UIDs/GIDs on the client and server system do not match closely enough to allow access by the user doing the mount. Note that this does not affect the normal ACL check on the target machine done by the server software (of the server ACL against the user name provided at mount time).
