[jcifs] JCIFS Pops up dialog box for Authenticating certain users

I have found this to be consistent with IE 6+ when the user is not already authenticated to the domain.  For example, a VPN user can (in some setups) avoid authenticating to the domain from their "home PC".  When that is the case, they will be prompted for credentials.

Also, if you are using an IP address or some names it can happen.  The best thing is to check that IE has the target URL/site/host in the "Intranet" or "Trusted Sites" zone first.

  Perhaps the problem is with the browser settings for those users?
  How's the log looks like for those users?

    We need to configure JCIFS for single sign on silently passing the
    credentials. For this we have configured the NtlmHttpFilter in the following
    manner in our web.xml file. The problem we are facing is that for certain
    users it works perfectly fine but for certain users it pops up a dialog box
    for the credentials . if the user provides the correct credentials then user
    gets authenticated.

    But we would like every user to be authenticated silently.

    can some one suggest what is wrong in the below configuration that it
    doesn't work for all users ?
