Hi Ori,

An IP should work fine. In fact I test JCIFS with IP before each
release. I think this will trigger a Node Status Request which is
probably some logic that should be removed at this point but I don't
think it should cause any trouble. If you are getting an error, you
should post a stack trace, log, etc ...
