Hi Alivier,

so I should, i.e. from the machine 1:
1. create the jail root on the shared repository, let's say

2. init it, i.e.:
    jk_init -j /Shared_Rsync_Repository/jailroot_ftp2 rsync

3. create the user MyAccount
    i.e.: useradd MyAccount

4. Jail the user:
    jk_jailuser -m -j /Shared_Rsync_Repository/jailroot_ftp2 umts2

... and now the machine 1 is fine.

So what I should do on machine 2 in order to have the access on the same jail user path?
Should I run the above steps 2, 3 and 4 from the machine 2 and that's all?

Jailkit won't be the problem. The jail itself is usually read-only, so
it is easily shared between machines. The rsync functionality  mostly
depends on your shared repository. Does it allow shared writes from two
