Mmm, well it shouldn't matter what you put in as an HTTP address. But yes, only
machines that are logged into the domain will transparently login with NTLM HTTP
Authentication. If you have a machine that has not "joined" the domain the domain
controller will not authenticate the client transparently. In this case I beleive
the Network Login dialog will be displayed at which point the user must supply
valid credentials for the domain against which jCIFS is authenticating. Is this
consistent which the behavior you see?


A program should be written to  model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes the  potential for it  to be applied  to tasks that are
conceptually similar and, more  important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
