SharpCifs is a port of JCIFS to C# for make your Windows Phone 8.1 (Silverlight) apps capable to work with network shares.

It was ported using the Lluis Sanchez's already compiled Sharpen (found at and applying a lot of changes to make the port works.


All client settings are same as jCifs, you can take a look at:

If you want to use the NetBIOS name resolution you must set the "jcifs.netbios.laddr" with phone's IP address, and "jcifs.netbios.baddr" with the broadcast address.


  • The JCIFS version ported to C# was 1.3.17.
  • By default I have disabled the DFS support due a problems with Microsoft accounts when you try to connect to your Windows 8.1. You can enable it by setting to true the "jcifs.smb.client.enabledfs" property.
  • I added a new method GetHosts on NbtAddress class to find hosts on small networks.
