Enable AppleShare logging
Authored by: cl0r0x70 on Apr 11, '03 12:30:34PM

Actually, my "guest_access" value was "1". Changing it to "0" had the desired affect of turning of anonymous access to my machine.

I created a user with basically no priveleges and gave out that name/password to all those who needed it.

I also love setting the login message via the same NetInfo screen: "Abandon Hope, All Ye Who Enter"

Stop Guest Access works
Authored by: josephaw on Sep 17, '03 11:21:59AM

Turn on file sharing and try to connect from another computer, Guest access is enabled.
Now stop file sharing and use NetInfo to change the guest flag.
Set the guest_access to 0 (zero) for AppleFileServer and save.
Turn on File sharing.
Then try to access the computer and Guest access is greyed out.
Whew! Door closed!

Stop Guest Access for 10.3 Personal File Sharing
Authored by: lengge on Aug 07, '04 02:01:51PM

First stop the Personal File Sharing in System Preferences -> Sharing

This configuration moved from NetInfo into

In that file look for the key guestAccess and change its value from true to false.

Restart the Personal File Sharing

BTW, the file share log can be enabled by setting activityLog to true in the same preferences file.
