I am new to JSIFC and believe it is what I am looking for.

What are the basic steps in setting this up to work with Tomcat please?

Of particular interest to me is what do I do on the Tomcat side?

What I have so far is:

1. download and install the jcifs-1.2.7 library in  server/lib

2. Update the  WEB-INF/web.xml....the sample I have from the manual 
   at http://jcifs.samba.org/src/docs/ntlmhttpauth.html is:




3. What else needs to happen at the tomcat config level? It's a new setup.

4. How do I extract the user Id from within the tomcat servlet.

Any pointers to docs appreciated.

Many Thanks!
