Thanks for the information.

Is there a way to turn ON or OFF NetBIOS compatibility
in a Win2K domain server with Active Directory ?

Currently jCIFS only works with NetBIOS over TCP/IP hosts. If you are
using Win2K/WinXP and AD without NetBIOS campatability it will not work.


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.
