Hi Mark

There are several unresolved issues related to JNA / NTLM via SSPI. You
can look them up in Jira. 

The main problem is that we have no one capable and willing to develop
this module further. 

I am glad it has been working working well for you, but there is no way
of knowing if it works equally well with all numerous MS products and
their combinations.
