BTW the jcifs.util.Hexdump class is good for formatting hex values. E.g.:

              String hex = jcifs.util.Hexdump.toHexString(mac, 0, 6);
>             System.out.println();
>             System.out.println("MAC Address: 0x" + hex);
>         }

Also, note that a notation like 0x123456789abc not common for byte
sequences. In fact the only other place I've seen it is in your NTLM
documentation. I would have much rather seen hexdump notation in that
documentation like:

00000: 12 34 56 78 9a bc       |........|

What are example outputs of "unclean" names?
