Then if or auth at does not work you might try something

   new SmbFile( "smb://auth@" +
         InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostAddress() +
         "/$IPC/named_pipe" );


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.
