What are you're trying to achieve by leaving the Windows domain out? When
you don't specify the domain with smbclient I believe the remote server
simply assumes the user is to be authenticated against the domain
with which the server is joined. The domain in the NTLM HTTP Filter
is effectively the domain with which the Filter is joined. Therefore
not specifying a domain with the Filter should have no visible effect
on clients.
