Hi Wolfgang,

The best way to diagnose an issue with JCIFS is to get two packet
capture - one of JCIFS failing and one of Windows succeeding at doing
exactly the same thing. Then I can compare the two packet-by-packet.
Also get corresponding logs with a log level of 4. So send me 4
attachments - the two packet captures and two corresponding logs. This
will give me the most detailed diagnostic possible.

Note that the result of all of this could easily be just end up being
added it to the TODO list for further investigation. Even if I see
exactly what the problem is. I just don't have a lot of time for much
other than large impact issues and unfortunately for you NetApp + DFS
is a project that has a low return on investment ratio.
