JCIFS uses a "null session" by default (I believe a null session is also
used if you use a URL like "smb://:@server/...". You can list shares that
do not have Unicode characters and are 12 characters or less. But listing
all shares and enumerating users requires RPC. We recently made a little
progress with RPC but the practical application of that work is still a
ways off. Try the jcifs-ext package. It might get you farther along.
