Obviously not. I can see other users directories and files, but of
course not access the files. This is controlled by AFS access lists.

This directory is my (backed up) home directory now available under AFS
in Linux. Previously it was NFS mounted when I was running Solaris.
It contains both files and directories. To get access files I need a
Kerberos ticket. Read/write/etc access are controlled by AFS access
list settings. As I said before, everything worked before the
upgrade. I can access my home directory by cd /afs/.../srs/ (or cd
afs_srs), etc, but not with nautilus! Even evolution works
(however with other problems) by a symbolic link: $HOME/.evolution
