JCIFS does an SMB_COM_SESSION_SETUP_ANDX against IPC$. It doesn't sound like
Novell supports this. Create a share on the Novell server like 'JCIFSACL'
and set it with the init-parameter jcifs.smb.client.logonShare. Then check
to make sure it is really excluding access to only authenticated users using
the JCIFS Logon.java example.

Authenticating against the Novell server to access files should work ok. But
using the Novell sewver as the domainController is a little different. In
the future when we do proper windows authentication it will not work at all
as that will require NETLOGON pipe or a KDC.
