Hi Mariusz,

No I don't know why that would be. But it seems to be obvious that the
servers must are in fact not identical in some way. I am not aware of
any scenario where JCIFS cannot authenticate with any server (although
very old systems like Windows 98 have not been tested recently). So I
can only conclude that the credentials being transmitted to the server
are actually not correct as the error message states.

>> Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password
>> When I access this share via net use .. from windows command line, or when

>> Any idea what might cause this problem?
