thanks for your feedback!

NTLM HTTP Authentication is currently not used, so people need to 
provide their credentials manually (this can be a security problem if 
SSL isn't used).

Some time ago I tried to get DFS working but failed with the 
getDfsPath-Example together with w2k3 sp1. DFS wasn't any priority, so I 
dropped it from the list.

Especially for universities this is really a good solution. The current 
version is a bit modified for NetApp Filers. E.g. snapshots are loaded 
from the ~snapshot subfolder and get sorted by the lastAccessTime 
attribute. Also the getFreeDiskSpace function stopped working with jCIFS 
1.2.0. I bypassed: if(ex.getNtStatus() == 
NtStatus.NT_STATUS_INVALID_INFO_CLASS) { and it worked again as it should.
