I currently have a Java application that queries an Active Directory domain and 
returns user/group information.
I also need to return user/group information from the WINS domain on our 

The LDAP API does not support WINS connections.  I assume that I need to run 
the query against the WINS domain via netbios or an RPC command.  

However, I have very little knowledge about networks at this level.

I have been doing a lot of searching on the web and have not found any helpful 

Is there any way to accomplish this using jcifs or any other Java API?

Thanks in advance,
