Connect a Mac to a SMB server - as Guest

One of the things I do in our network is public drives. Every Linux system has a public 'incoming' which is mapped to the primary user of the device (if there is one, like for a laptop). And this incoming shared drive can be accessed without password. This makes it really convenient to copy files around from one laptop/user to another, or from mobile devices to laptops and vice versa, or use the printer/scanner to send the scan job directly to the laptop of the user's device.

HP Color LaserJet: Unable to connect to the network

We have a HP Color LaserJet in the office, one of these devices which can do both printing and scanning. The newer versions include a very nice feature “Scan to network folder” - so I did setup options to scan different PDF sizes to all of our laptops. Very convenient!

Until it stopped working a while ago.
