I am using Jcifs 1.3.8_tb in my application and can not use the latest jcifs
library for some missing functions in the newer versions of the Jcifs

We have been testing our app which requires reading data from a Cifs share,
when testing with Windows 2008 R2, unfortunately it does not seem to work.

We get the following exception which seems to be at the authentication

smbtransport: new connection<00>/ 445 administrator

As this seems to be an authentication issue. is there a way to use Jcifs
version 1.3.8 with Windows 2008 R2?

With the latest version of Jcifs (version 1.3.16) application works fine and
I am able to read the remote directory and list files, but I am not able to
get some file metadata which I can with 1.3.8 which is why I have to use the
older version of jcifs.

Any help to get the 1.3.8_tb version working with windows 2008 R2 and
similar with or without a third party product would be most helpful.

Many Thanks in advance for any guidance.
