Samba hidden share


Hello!

I want to know how to set up hidden share on a Samba server, so that Windows user need to know the whole path in order to access files on Samba. Thanks for your help!

When you create a share in smb.conf use the option
browseable = no

They will be able to enter the path and connect to the share via windows explorer
