    Hide samba share


    Is there a way to keep people from browsing the network using "Network Neighborhood" from seeing the samba shared folders on the samba server.

    I want the shares to be there, I do not want them visible. I will map them on the Windows machines without browsing for them.

    I would think it should be in the smb.conf file.

    Yes it goes in your smb.conf file. I think that all you have to do is add:

    browseable = no

    to any shares that you dont want visible.

    Thank you. Worked fine. What I found interesting about it, it appeared to work even without restarting SAMBA.
