I'm seeing this error in one of my deployments. I have others that
work perfectly fine and this never occurs (this one is on a different
domain).  After I see this once, it happens over and over.

jcifs.util.transport.TransportException: Connection in error

I'm using jcifs 1.2.6 for NTLM in a custom application that looks
mostly like an http servlet engine.

I saw a reference in a thread from last year that suggested a
disconnect needed to be called and am looking into patching the

I was wondering, is this the same issue?

Any idea what would cause this?

I'm considering updating to 1.2.9, but am hesitant to do so with out a
lot of testing.  Are there any changes in those updates that might
affect this?

Thank you,
