    I love it and I use it But, how do I create a user that can have read only access and expiring password?

    I current access it by going to \\azure\share and then Windows prompts for a username and password.

    It works great but I want to really share it to others and obviously, I cannot give out my super secret password.

    I want to have a different user such as azure\user with there own password.

    Can ya'll help?

    This is possible via Couchdrop's SMB/NFS Gateway. Basically log into their UI, connect your S3 (Blob) bucket as an endpoint and they will give you a URL that you put in as if it was a network drive. The whole process takes about 5 minutes and doesn't need any software or downloads.
