I get the same error as other people have reported, "0xC0000022: jcifs.smb.SmbAuthException: Access is denied", when a second user tries to get logged in on a 2nd client desktop.

"Inconsistent Authentication Results: Access Denied & Windows Enter password popping up"
(Problem reported with 1.2.7, 1.2.8)
NtlmHttpFilter: [DOMAIN]\\[USERNAME]: 0xC0000022:

"Re: Ntlm authentication prompts 2nd user - Win 2003"
(Problem reported with 1.1.11, 1.2.0, 1.2.1, "Only jcifs 1.1.9 works fine")
signature verification failure
NtlmHttpFilter: softec\soltis: 0xC0000022: jcifs.smb.SmbAuthException: Access is denied.

If I downgrade to jcifs version 1.1.9 as Ján Šoltís did, authentication for the second user is OK, but only on the second click on a filtered URL. On the first click, you see:

I am running jcifs as part of Liferay 4.3.1 on Red Hat Linux 4, Tomcat 6, JDK6, with a Windows Server 2003 DC. But I've moved the filter's priority up and put debugs into it so I can configure it and see what it's doing pretty much independently of Liferay - though I will try running jcifs alone.
Anyone capable of fixing the 1.2.x code?
