You make the connection as normal, send BEGIN SSPI\nNTLM\n then start a windows NTLM security negotiation. For details see the xxx_connect funtions in protocols\ntserver.c and protocols\sspi.c It might be easier to make a JNI interface to the protocol DLLs, since then all the hard work is done and all you have to do is call them.
