Well, the message is pretty clear :

Unsupport critical control: 2.16.840.1.113730.3.4.18

You are not doing someting wrong. If you request ADS rootDSE for the 
operational attribute supportedControl, you will get the list of 
currently supported ones. Proxed Auth is not in this list right now.

We don't generate the javadoc, because we are lazzy, and also because 
this is not a library, but a server. However, generating it should be 
easy, but we don't have time to dip our fingers into maven to do it. 
Feel free to help us by adding the missing pieces ;) The very same for 
the SRC package.

>Thanks for you help and the great job you are doing!
Thank you for using ADS !
