We are having trouble getting the jCIFS client to work with the newer SMBX.   I have a 10.7.5 test machine where we have been testing.   If I turn off SMBX and turn on the SMBUp everything works as expected.   I am wonder if we need some client properties set to get it to work.   We have been testing with this snippet of code

   NtlmPasswordAuthentication ntlm = new NtlmPasswordAuthentication( ntdom, user, pass );
   try {
    SmbFile f1 = new SmbFile( "smb://@"+host+"/",ntlm );

    files = f1.list();
    for( int i=0; i< files.length; i++) {
      out.println( "<tr><td></td><td>" + files[i] + "</td></tr>");

   }catch(Exception e){



INFO  (09/03) 13:39:41 [stderr](Thread qtp1493657028-148): jcifs.smb.SmbAuthException: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.
INFO  (09/03) 13:39:41 [stderr](Thread qtp1493657028-148):      at jcifs.smb.SmbSession.sessionSetup(SmbSession.java:406)
INFO  (09/03) 13:39:41 [stderr](Thread qtp1493657028-148):      at jcifs.smb.SmbSession.send(SmbSession.java:218)

I can get you the full debug of this code working ( SMBup / Samba ) and with it not working ( SMBX ).   I can also get packet traces of the same.
