[jcifs] Version of JCIFS?

I've been working again with one of our server engineers and she enabled this setting on the server:  "enable netbios over tcpip".  Once she did that I was able to get in without issue and without making changes to JCIFS within our app.  What is weird is that I cannot get in over a wireless connection using VPN but I can get in over a wired connection using VPN.

Any insight here?  Thanks.

Hi Melinda,

Old versions of JCIFS are available under the 'old' subdirectory like:

My guess is that you're trying to use short netbios names but WINS is
gone. Always use fully qualified DNS hostnames in your SMB URLs like
smb://server.domain.com/ and not NetBIOS short names like
