I have installed Samba server on my trixbox using webmin. when I try to log from windows it asks me for username and password but for some reasons I can't add new users from Webmin.

Can some body help me to set the Samaba users.

Try the following :

In webmin there is an option to set the security to SHARE instead of USER do that
and make sure that you allow guest to logon to to the shares.

This should allow you to access the shares with no username and password.

If that does not work please print out your smb.conf file and I wll try to help you.
