I found this on Apple's support page at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1549?viewlocale=en_US:

File Sharing on Mac OS X is intended for up to 10 simultaneously-connected clients.  If you need to connect more that 10 users at one time, you should upgrade to the Unlimited-Client version of Mac OS X Server (http://www.apple.com/server/).

Can't be done. There is a 10 user limitation for file sharing unless you purchase server software (i.e., OS X Server).

IF you really need to use a Mac as a file server for 15 people, your best bet is to buy a Mac Mini with OS X server pre-installed for $999:
