Sorry, this didn't change anything for me. May it be there's something tricky going on within Apache XML-RPC?

  Fixed!  There were two things going on:

  1)  The XmlRpcClient doesn't explicitly set the request method
  (i.e., setRequestMethod("POST").  The underlying connection
  apparently switches from "GET" (the default) to "POST" when
  a write is actually attempted; this seems to be undocumented
  behavior, so it's probably not good that they rely on it.  In
  any case, this was causing jCIFS to send a "GET" on the second
  request (since that's what our wrapper connection thought it
  was doing).  I fixed this by adopting the final status of the
  current underlying connection before reconnecting.

  2)  We send the POST content initially (at the first POST attempt)
  and with the Type 3 message (the third POST request); we don't
  send it with the Type 1, since the server is expected to reject
  the request with a Type 2 message.  The XmlRpcClient had set
  the content length explicitly however, so we were sending
  Content-Length=xxxx with no content; this was causing IIS to block
  on a read (as it was expecting to get xxxx bytes).  I fixed this
  by setting content length to 0 on the Type 1 request.

  Attached is the updated version, along with an example trace; let
  us know if this works properly, and I'll see if Mike would be kind
  enough to release.  Thanks!
