This is a little wierd, but the filter works fine in win2k3 environment if
the domainCOntroller address is specified, but when I use the WINS
resolution only, the browser doe not get my credentials and tries to
authenticate as a GUEST user with "?" domain. 
Any ideas what is likely missing that I can consut my AD Admins with.
I am using jcifs-1.2.19
