Alfresco,

I found the following in the file-servers-custom.xml file, this seems to ENABLE guest access. I wanted to DISABLE the guest login. What is the recomended method to do this (in Alfresco Enterprise 2.1.1)?

   <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="Filesystem Security">
      <authenticator type="alfresco">
         <allowGuest/>
         <!– Map any unknown user to guest –>
         <!–
         <mapUnknownUserToGuest/>
         –>
      </authenticator>
   </config>

1. Remove the authenticator in this file?
2. Change the <allowGuest/> to something like <disallowGuest/>?
3. Change the option in the authenticationComponent in the authentication-services-context.xml file?

I tried a few of these but the last one seems the only one that works. That's fine for me but does that mean the one in the file-servers-custom.xml is obsolete?
