I have a USB storage device connected to my DDWRT router. I have it configured under the USB and NAS tabs and I have never had any problems accessing it nor any problems sending/receiving files..

I have only 2 users configured to access it and no Guest access, or at least I think I don't have any Guest access. I say that because when connecting to it by server address, I get a choice of using a user name and password or Guest. The Guest does not require a password and I am able to connect using Guest! I want only the two users I have specified to access the drive and no one else. How do I fix this?

@emanon Hello.

I took the liberty to move this thread to the general questions, which may get attention from the community.

Well IDK if you have yet resolved this but just in case, it would be best if you pasted your configuration, especially the samba config files.

Depending on the samba version in use the configuration may vary.

Essentially you want to guest ok = no under the right share type.

You should read https://github.com/mirror/dd-wrt/blob/master/opt/usr/lib/smb.conf it essentially a self explanatory file with plenty comments.

There is also https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Samba but I dont know how up to date that is.

Let us know what happens then.

No problem, take your time.

I just happened to stumble on your topic while browsing some forum looking for something unrelated.

Take care.
