The document describes the gyrations required to do this but, one of the elements of the transformation is "an 8 byte string whose value is available from Microsoft upon request".  Any idea what this string might be or how to get it?

Look  at  the  top  of jcifs/smb/SmbSession.java. You can in all likelyhood
just  use  the  E()  method.  It's  probably  very similar but i don't know
really.  It will take some fiddling and reasoning. You don't really need to
know much about encryption to do it but you might want to get a capture and
copy  out  the  encrypted  value  of  a known password so you can test your
encryption method.
