A share consists of a directory to which access is being given plus a description of the access rights which are granted to the user of the service.

Sections may be designated is used to define access privileges in this case.
When the connection request is made, the existing sections are scanned. If no match is found, the requested section name is treated as a username and looked up in the local password file.
If the name exists and the correct password has been given, a share is created by cloning the [homes] section.
