It shouldn't make any difference. From the -Dlog=ALL trace you sent me it looks like the server
is responding to the SMB_COM_NEGOTIATE reqest but jCIFS didn't read the complete
response. It's expecting something more. We would need a packet capture to see what this
server is really doing. Someone has a bug I think.
Also is OS400 EBCDIC encoding? I don't think we fully abstracted the host encoding until 0.7. I
see you're using IBM's 1.2 and jcifs-0.6.8.
