Please collect two network packet captures:

1. Japanese Windows client and server performing authentication and
file listing.

2. JCIFS trying and failing with the same server and parameters.

I will compare the two and see how different things are. In theory it
should work. I would need to compare captures to see how far away
JCIFS is from working with Japanese WIndows. If Japanese Windows is
using UTF-16 surrogates it's probably not worth the trouble.


PS: Do not send packet captures to the mailing list. Send them to me directly.
