[jcifs] Anyway to force basic authentication?

We have a client that wants to authenticate against Active Driectory
but wants the users to always be prompted for their credentials, so I
thought enabling Basic authentication would accomplish that but it
appears that is just a fallback in case NTLM fails so it doesn't quite
do what we need.

My next thought was well if you turn off Integrated Windows
Authentication in Internet Explorer then that should disable NTLM but
for some reason that doesn't seem to work (yes I closed IE and
reopened it) as it still authenticates.

So does anyone know how to always force basic authentication to be
used? SSL is being forced so security isn't really an issue with using
the basic authentication.
