[jcifs] Question about SmbTransport.java, Performance improvement

Hi Mike,

In SmbTransport.java there is in doConnect():
        tconHostName = address.getHostName()

I changed this to:
        tconHostName = address.getHostAddress();

Now connecting is (very) much faster, and I can even use 
smb://administrator:xxx@ as smb-url.
(I tested Samba, WinXP, w2k3 and w2k3 as ad-controller)

Are there any reasons why I need getHostName() ? Do I need it for NetBios ?

Best regards,
