I am getting an java.net.SocketException with the description of "Connection 
reset by peer: socket write error" when I try and do NTLM authentication 
against the local machine and no network is available using SmbSession.login.  
This method is being passed the result of InetAddress.getLocalHost() for the 
domainController parameter and an instance of NtlmPasswordAuthentication with 
the machine name as the domain name, as well as the users credentials.  If I 
plug the network interface back in it works, unplug it again, it fails.
