with jcifs 1.2.15 (and later) the in 
http://jcifs.samba.org/src/docs/ntlmhttpauth.html#adpolicy described 
workaround to set jcifs.netbios.hostname to a valid NetBIOS name and add 
that name to the AD security policy as a permitted client doesn't work 
any longer. The client can't be authenticated although this property is 
set correctly.
With jcifs 1.2.14 this workaround works fine / as described and the user 
can be authenticated although he's only allowed to log on from permitted 

Could this be a side effect of disabling port 139 with jcifs 1.2.15? How 
to authenticate users which are only allowed to log into the domain from 
their personal workstations with jcifs 1.2.15 (and later)?

Best regards
