This error occurs when you try to list the IPC$ share like:
java -Djcifs.properties=test.properties ListFiles "smb://filer/IPC$/"
which is of course invalid. One thing that you might not realize is
that listing each node returned by listing "smb://filer/" will attempt
to list IPC$ and printers which is again invalid.
Also, what version of JCIFS are you using and what is the server
