Thanks for the explanation. Very useful.
The problem that we encountered was that jCIFS had set the VC number to 0.
Whenever we established a new connection, any *existing* connections from
the same client would be closed.
So, for example, I was using smbclient to manipulate protection bits while
running a jCIFS test against the same share on a W2K box. Whenever jCIFS
opened a new connection, the W2K server would close the connection with
smbclient (which uses a VC number of 1). When we also changed jCIFS to
use a VC number of 1, everything worked fine.
This appears only to be an issue if both connections originate from the
