For most people yes. I beleive the verdict in your case was that your
clients require NTLMv2. JCIFS does not support NTLMv2 very well. If
your web server is running on Windows you could try the patch posted by
Eric but I believe you'll also have to use jcifs.http.domainController = and maybe set lmCompatibility. When I get around to applying
the various little fixes I'll try to fix this up a little (at least get
rid of the ArrayIndexOutOutBounds exception). Otherwise you'll have to
dig into the docs and learn about the NTLM HTTP Authentication protocol
if you really want it to work.

No the Filter doesn't use properties files.


Greedo shoots first? Not in my Star Wars.
