If a server accepts the SMB_COM_NEGOTIATE request but does not
respond, the NbtSocket.connect() method will hang indefinately. I
believe this may have been reported before actually. Attached is a new
src/jcifs/netbios/NbtSocket.java that sets an the socket timeout to
jcifs.netbios.soTimeout which by default is 5000ms.


If you have changes now is the time.


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.
