The "guest" user can access some network shares.

If you do not want the 'guest' user to be able to access any share on the remote system :

- On Mac OS X client, edit System Preferences -> Accounts
-> Guest and uncheck the option 'Allow guests to connect to shared folders'.

- On Mac OS X server, edit the AFP service and disable option 'Allow guests to connect'.
