Chuck - thanks so much for the info and the URL.  Our lead who installed JCIFS
on our application is no longer at the company that I work for and so not being
familiar with JCIFS, which by the way, has been working famously for us, is
unfortunately not known by anyone else within our company.  I will check out
JESPA and hopefully I can replace JCIFS easily with this.  Thanks again.
