CIFS question (guests, no authentication)

What has already been attempted:

I am trying to get CIFS to work in a Windows 7 environment. After checking the documentation to see which authentication systems support CIFS, I first tried alfrescoNTLM, then passthru. Both failed due to Alfresco using a different NTLM version than Windows 7. The proposed solutions (client-side modifications) for this are not an option, it has to be a server-side solution. Now, after trying to get an Active Directory set up for use with Kerberos authentication and locking everyone out of the system by accident, I'm not too eager to try that again. 

The current situation:

With none of the authentication systems currently authenticating CIFS, it's possible to use \\<serverIp>:<alfrescoPort>\alfresco  and see the site folders. There are no subfolders or other content shown, however. Is it possible to configure Alfresco and/or CIFS so that it shows more while nothing is authenticating CIFS? (Yes, I'm aware that this basically amounts to having no security at all). If so, how would I go about it?
