Hi Jiang,

You do not need to use Buffer{Input,Output}Stream. In fact it will
probably just slow things down. Just use FileInputStream with the
OutputStream of SmbFile directly.

Try setting jcifs.smb.client.responseTimeout = 120000. This is 4 x the
default of 30 seconds. The file server is probably trying to do
something on close that is causing the response to take a long time.
If it still happends after waiting 2 minutes, I don't know what the
problem is.
