    Disbale 'SHARED' menu

    Hopefully this will make sense, in Leopard but prob in Tiger aswell down the right of a filey type window, i.e. if you are in application or utilites etc where it says, DEVICES, SHARED, PLACES etc, i want to be able to remove the SHARED one and also any other places that it may lurk.

    We dont really want students seeing the names off all the machines as it includes servers plus you can open them up and see all the shares on them.

    Because of permissions they cant do anything but we'd prefer the little rascals didnt see all this.

    If anyone out there can help that would be great.

    For info we dont have a mac os server so cant do clever stuff, got remote desktop. If theres some similar to the removal of the bonjour service, which is removing a file(a .plist thing) out of the launchdaemons folder that would be great.

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    Taken from the above URL :

    In my testing the preference file com.apple.sidebarlists.plist from the user's Library/Preferences folder contains settings that, if set to no, hides the Sharing items from the Sidebar.

    Any chance you can make a copy of the file to your desktop then use either :

    http://smultron.sourceforge.net/

    or text edit and post back with everything thats inside that plist file. Better yet just upload the plist file as an attachment.

    I havent got leopard so not sure what options are in the file.

    short of that you could find out what ports it uses or just enable the firewall and make sure you have the ports that the users need allowed in the firewall so it blocks everything else *shrugs*
