I am using Samba 2.2.8a as a file and print server. When I execute smbclient
with my server as parameter, I see all my shares and I also see IPC$ and

I am trying to find out

1. If I try to connect to \\MySambaServer\ADMIN$ from a windows machine, as
username/password dialog pops up. What is password for this?

2. Is there a way to disable the ADMIN$ share via smb.conf ? What are the
possible side-effects?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks and regards,

Rohit Wadhwa.
