[jcifs] Windows domain required for authentication?

Hi all,

within a prototyping project we have to evaluate authentication on a Windows
domain from a Java application running on Linux. My question is:

- do I really need a Windows domain controller installed or can I authentify
against Samba on a Linux based host instead of a Windows Box?

I would like to avoid bringing a Windows machine into my project. It would be
great if we could simulate it with Samba!

Any hint is appreciated!

Best regards
