I can mount it from linux using mount -t cifs -o 
username=user,password=password // /mnt/x
The code used for connection:

String sb = "sbm://"
NtlmPasswordAuthentication auth = new NtlmPasswordAuthentication("", 
"username", "password");
SmbFile file = new SmbFile(sb, auth);
SmbFileOutputStream sos = new SmbFileOutputStream(file, false);

This code works for the other computers. Any idea why jcifs is not 
working for this particular computer?
