[jcifs] Re: Authentication via SmbSession.logon

The KDE capture doesn't have the session setup communication. Try logging
out of your KDE session, log back in, and run your capture before trying to
access the target server.

But I think I see the problem. The AccountName field has MACH\name which
leads me to believe you are using
smb://MACH\\name:password@server/share/path/. The account name cannot have a
backslash in it. That is not a valid character in a URL. The 'MACH' part is
the domain. See the SmbFile API documentation for proper SMB URL usage. I
short I think you want smb://MACH;name:password@server/share/path/.


PS: You should not use credentials in the URL at all. Put them somewhere
else and build your SmbFile with an NPA like:

NtlmPasswordAuthentication npa = new NtlmPasswordAthentication( "MACH",
"name", "password" );
SmbFile file = new SmbFile( url, npa );
