    Well, Depends if its a Mac or a Windows computer. On a Mac it wont show, but on a Windows computer it may show your Mac but will not allow access, if it is in the same workgroup.

    Turning off file sharing will indeed make the computer not show up, but you are never undetectable when actively using a network.
    Remember, Bonjour (zeroconf) is always on.
