Disabling 'connect to server', browsing for servers, etc

I'm wondering if it's possible in OSX to disable the ability for a casual user to not have access to any servers that the Mac can see.

The Mac needs to be constantly connected to the network for remote management purposes, but we don't want users of those Macs to be able to see any drives outside of what's installed on that Mac.

Is this possible to achieve?

thanks!

Disabling bonjour should accomplish that. Unless your users are smrt enough to know ips of servers and whatnot.

That's great! I thought of that also, but I can't find where one would do that. Can you point me in the right direction?
