I seriously doubt you will find a way to make that work. JCIFS emulates
a CIFS client over a NetBIOS LAN. Without a network to communicate jCIFS
will simply not work. And if the host does not have a loopback device
there is no network for local communication. You would be much better
off using a little JNI to wrap whatever Win32 features you're looking for.
