[jcifs] FAQ - Samba Required on Client?

I am using the HTTP filter under jCIFS 0.8.3 running under JBoss 3.2.5.  I 
installed my application on a Sun Solaris machine and authentication did 
not work initially (SMB Connection Refused).  We then enabled Samba on the 
machine and authentication began working.  It seems to me that jCIFS 
includes its own Samba client so it should not require Samba to be 
installed and enabled.  Is this assumption correct?  If so, what changes 
do I need to make to the installation of jCIFS?  We have the following in 
our web.xml:


We place jcifs-0.8.3.jar in the WEB-INF/lib directory.

Thank you.
