Mounting on a Linux system a public share am Prompted for root password of host.

  • My share is RW to everyone on my lan without username or password, also know as guest access enabled. Tested working.
    I attempted to mount on a CentOS box with mount.cifs /IP/public /public
    CentOS system requested my root password for host (IP) from above?
    Any insight would be great.
