Hi Tony,

Actually I think the Kerberos version can do both. The Keberos version
is updated whenever those guys supply a new package which is every 6
months or so. Unfortunately the JCIFS API has
NtlmPasswordAuthentication objects littered throughout the codebase
and those need to be factored out and replaced with some credential
agnostic infrastructure. I'm pretty sure I know what I'm going to do
for that but for a variety of reasons it's not going to happen soon.
