[jcifs] Java newbie- trying to access a windows public share

I am confused about the credentials piece   
This is a public share and I don't use a user profile/pwd to access this
DO I still need to pass credentials.   As I understand it, there are
none for this file.

Here you probably want to do:

jcifs.Config.setProperty("jcifs.netbios.wins", "");

This should be "smb://ggc-ad/Public/IS/mike/020707P.txt" (needs a colon
in there).

You will need to specify the credentials used to access the file; you
probably want to add something like:

jcifs.Config.setProperty("jcifs.smb.client.domain", "NTDOMAIN");
jcifs.Config.setProperty("jcifs.smb.client.username", "myusername");
jcifs.Config.setProperty("jcifs.smb.client.password", "mypassword");
