Well, first off...  If you are using a Windows WINS server for name
resolution and then you restart WINS, it will lose its database and won't 
be able to resolve names.  If it can't resolve a name to an IP address, 
then the jCIFS client software won't be able to find the server it needs.

Second...  Why do you have your WINS address set to "*.*.*.*"?
