Hi Mike,
I think the filter is working because it correctly displays my NT-domain
username. As far as I know, the filter sets up a challenge response with
MSIE and gets the domain, username and a password hash from it. After which
it calls SmbSession.logon(). I think there is something wrong with the logon
part because even when I enter a dummy username the filter lets the user
into the system.
