Samba share browseable, how do I make it invisible yet accessible?


Okay so I'm trying to make it so that the only way to access a share is to know the name of the share. I have a username/password that I'd like to be able to share with multiple people and allow them to connect more than one at a time. The problem being that when I set the shares browseable value to = no then it doesn't seem to allow more than one user to be connected at a time. What should I try in order to do what I want successfully? Thanks in advance.
