If  your  URL  refers to a directory, it needs a trailing '/'. Read the API
documentation  for  SmbFile  *for  the  proper version of jCIFS that you're
using*.  Sometimes  the  server  requires  that you set a domain, username,
password. See the Overview page of teh API documentation about how to use a
properties file.

A  program should be written to model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes  the  potential  for it to be applied to tasks that are
conceptually  similar and, more important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
