Eric, many thanks. What are the drawbacks to option 2... that is, why isn't it the default?

The failing client appears to be set up to use NTLMv2 authentication; there
are two ways to fix this situation:
1) On the affected client, look at the registry value:
it's probably set to 3, 4, or 5. Set it to 0, 1, or 2. This setting is
described in detail at:
Setting it to 0 or 1 will do LM/NTLM (version 1); 2 will just do NTLM.
2) Set the jCIFS property "jcifs.smb.lmCompatibility" to 3. This will cause
jCIFS to use LMv2 (which is kind of a "stripped down" NTLMv2).
Either of the above should allow the client to authenticate properly.
