I don't know that using the windows library would work (if it did, someone 
would have done this already).

I'm trying to create a DSAPI filter (authentication filter) for the Domino 
web server so that it can handle authentication via Internet Explorer 

I have worked with the jcifs library (and read through the java code) and 
understand 'how it works', i am now at the tedious part where, without 
finding a suitable C version, I have to port the java code back to C (which 
I don't think will be all that exciting).

If you have any suggestions on windows libraries that can do something like 
this already, i'd be more than happy to look them up (I just don't know of
