Subject: working with hidden shares 2.2.4

the is no documentation on hidden share ability but adding $-sign to end of
share it hides it.

only problem is that it's not accessible anymore.

for user who is not allowed to access the share it asks for username and
password, but
user which is valid is presented with: "network usage denied" (my own
translation :)

so how to make admin share which won't be stupidly seen in everybody's
