No, it wouldn't.  Using your laptop, use putty to port forward the windows
share port on your machine to the windows (samba) share port on your
server.  Then, when you attempt to connect to a windows share from your
laptop, you'll actually connect to the windows share of the server,
tunneled through SSH.  The port forwarding will not affect the other
windows machines inside the network, but will prevent your laptop from
viewing the shares on whatever network it's on until the forwarding is

Well, that sounds very promising. So the network browsing (of the laptop) is only temporarily switched off. I could live with that. I will definitely give it a try.

Best regards and many thanks for the answers,
