I just started to use jCifs to access remote servers and retrieve files. I 
succeeded to authenticate against Windows 2003 and later Windows, and crawl 
However, i fail to authenticate with Windows XP. I checked the packets 
exchange, and it's like as soon as i get connected, instead of using the user 
name and password i provided, the system tries to connect as a guest.

Do you have any explanation on that?
