Review: SharingMenu 1.0
Developer: Manfred Lippert
Requirements: Mac OS X 10.2
SharingMenu, simply put, does exactly what it’s supposed to do—nothing more, nothing less. It does it perfectly, and does it for free.
So what does it do? It adds a menu bar icon to provide a no-frills method to enable and disable Mac OS file sharing, Windows file sharing, Web sharing, remote access, and FTP access without having to load the System Preferences window. A future release will include the ability to toggle remote Apple events and printer sharing.
SharingMenu even goes a step beyond the Sharing preference pane’s capabilities by letting you disable guest access when using personal file sharing, meaning only people with existing user accounts on your computer can connect to it.
SharingMenu is a perfect time saver for anyone who frequently needs to turn various sharing modes on and off.
