I have a Windows 10 PC with a public share set up, and want to be able to access files on the share without providing a username and password to connect.
Other Windows PCs can access it using //ServerName/Public without giving a username or a password – they have full r/w access. Also, many Android devices (Nokia 8, Samsung 8, Samsung Tab A) have no problem gaining r/w access to the share without giving a username or password – using, e.g., ES File Explorer.
I have tried various parameters to
mount.cifs without success. The permutations are endless and there is no guiding philosophy. Has anyone done this successfully?
Note that Ubuntu is the client, not the server.
