 I am have been using NtlmHttpFilter for retrieving logged in user name in a domain in my web application. Then jcifs version I used is jcifs 1.1.11, now I moved to version
Jcifs1.2.17 now the problem is the filter class stopped working and I get error message saying ' Error filter Start' on server console ( tomcat 5).
With this even the application context initialization also getting stopped. Below are entries in web.xml  and code I used  for retrieving logged in user name.
I would be great full to you if you could help me in finding out where I am going wrong and its work around.






            <param-value>my domain</param-value>











And the code for retrieving logged in user name is

java.security.Principal principal = request.getUserPrincipal();

System.out.println(" Security principal :"+principal);

                        if(principal !=null){

                                    remoteUser = principal.getName();

                                    int number = remoteUser.lastIndexOf("\\");

                                    id = remoteUser.substring(number+1);

                                    id = id.toUpperCase();


  System.out.println("[SED INFO MESSAGE] - SED - Message: User ID = " + id);

   String username1 = id;

Thanks for your time. Thanks in advance.
