I am trying to read some flat file from remote windows machine using smb protocol. I am using jcifs- 1.3.15. Its working fine with Windows 2003, 2000 but not with 2008 R2.
Could anybody explain is it not compatible with 2008 R2?. Is there any other alternative which will work for all windows versions.
I get following exception for 2008 servers.
java.lang.NullPointerException at jcifs.smb.SmbFile.getType(SmbFile.java:1278)
