    Just a quick question, when I go to my school we have a Wired and Wireless network. I am usually connected to the Wireless network, when I go to my "Network" page in OS X it shows all the schools computers (e.g: R219X1, R219X2, R220X1, R220X2 etc) Basically it displays the computers in each room and the number of the computer. This is great because I can log in with my school ID and connected to my private drives / print etc.

    However in the Network list are also other students, from other Macbook's to iPads, Playbooks etc. Basically anybody connected to the internet. I would like to know how I disable other people from viewing my Macbook in that "connected list" or even making it so I don't show up.

    I have all my OS X settings to not share anything, but I have never actually used somebody else's computer to see if they can connect to me or even see me. Any help would be great!

    They will not see you when you disabled file sharing.
