Temporarily turn off selinux, if that fixes your issue you will need to
adjust the selinux rules to take care of the problem (or just completely
disable selinux). Also if you do a ls -alhDZ /home/me/mytestshare before
you turn it off it can tell you if selinux is on, then run that again after
its turned off to confirm. You can read about disabling/turning off selinux
