2239 is account expired and 2242 is password expired. That's what MS
documentation says and that's what the authhandler.html docs say. I
don't see where you were led to believe something is not corrent?

I'm not sure what the problem could be. For listing shares and workgroups
you usually don't need authentication credentials. Try examples/SmbShell
without a properties file (or specifying any properties). Cd to
smb://workgroup and do an ls. If you get the AuthException, try
entering the correct credentials. If you have a Linux box, see if
smbclient -L //servername can list it. If it still doesn't work runt
the examples/List.java example with -Dlog=ALL and send it to me.
