(new SmbFile("smb://server/share/")).mkdir()  // not possible
(new SmbFile("smb://server/")).mkdir()  // not possible
(new SmbFile("smb://workgroup/")).mkdir()  // not possible
(new SmbFile("smb://server/share/directory/")).mkdir()  // ok if you have permission

What's the error?

> Hello,
>  I am not able to create a directory with the mkdir() or mkdirs() method of
