Whenever I open Cyberduck in my school (which has 60+ iMacs) I immediately get flooded with Growl alerts telling me that Cyberduck has found Bonjour network shares, filling up my entire screen, and then some.

How can i prevent this from happening? I do not want to stop Cyberduck from discovering Bonjour shares.

You have a nasty typo in there :) – Daniel Rikowski Jul 24 '09 at 11:12

Go to System Preferences » Growl » Applications. Select Cyberduck and "Configure". Highlight "Bonjour" and deselect the "Enabled" checkbox.

Unfortunately, this only works if you're using Growl. There is no option to only disable Bonjour notifications in the OS X native Notifications preferences. – donut Jan 24 '14 at 18:28

In OSX Mavericks and newer, Cyberduck uses the built-in notifications.

To disable the notifications, go to System Preferences -> Notification Center. Find Cyberduck in the list and set the message format to "None", and you will no longer get popups.

If you alt-click the close button on the growl notification, it will close all the notifications visible.
