thank you for the advise I have upgraded to the latest version as suggested 
below. I am no longer getting the error. However, I get prompted 3 times for 
a userid and password then the browser goes to a blank page.

I am using xp and ms server 2003. I'm trying to use JCIF to authernticate NT 
users using NTLM. I guess the reason i am being prompted for the logon is 
down to an incorrect configuration.

I am a novice so please be patient :-)

the web.xml looks like this

    <filter-name>NTLM Authentication Filter</filter-name>
