Thanks for the repsonse. In that case is it advisable that I use ONLY
jcifs.smb.client.domain property (i.e. (i.e. I use neither
jcifs.smb.client.domainController or jcifs.netbios.wins). Which domain
controller will this set up use to authenticate against and are their any
risk with this? 

This URL (http://eckhart.stderr.org/doc/libjcifs-java-doc/ntlmhttpauth.html)
says "Either a jcifs.smb.client.domain or jcifs.smb.client.domainController
property is required". 90% of my users belong to one specific domain while
others are third party users and need not require SSO.
