samba question: what controls top-level share visibility?
 
I'm setting up my first samba server, and I want to make 3 shares. One public read-only, two private. Any user on the Windows network should be able to see that these shares exist from my server. The public share should be fully readable, but unauthenticated users should not be able to go any farther into the restricted two.

It seems I can either make them all accessible or all locked down (none visible).

What smb.conf entry controls whether or not they are visible at all?

Thanks.

Have you tried
Code:

browseable = no
in the share definitions?
