I have the two users
hoster on my machine.
I created a samba share
/home/equah, which is accessible by user
equah without any problem.
I also created the share
/smbtest and changed ownership to user
equah, which is accessible by
But when I create the share
/home/hoster/sharetest and try to connect, nautilus prompts with

/home/hoster/sharetest/test and changing ownership of both
sharetest/test to equah, does also not work to share only the
