Extend the NTLM filter to read the property from the System properties
and store it in the jcifs.http.domainController jCIFS property (I think
the jcifs.Config object will let you do this).  The NTLM filter is
really just an example of how to use jCIFS, not a hard and steadfast

Subject: [jcifs] NTML and dynamic domain controller

 I've been looking through the mailing list and tried this for 
days... pls. help!

I'd need NTML authentication in a web application, 
but I do not want to specify any static IP address or domain name in 
the web.xml: I would like to store jcifs.http.domainController value in 
a props file, set the value via System.setProperties() when the web 
application fires up (i.e. setting it from a servlet that is invoked at 

But it does not work, the filter is complaining about:
jcifs.smb.SmbException: A domain was not specified
if the jcifs.http.
domainController params is not in the web.xml.
While if I specify it in 
the web.xml I can't override the value...

I'm using jcifs 1.2.17


Thanks in advance,
