I have a root-authorization-problem using swat with the netscape-browser
on my DS20E-compaq-unix-server.
First some configuration-items:
I'am running UNIX on a compaq DS20E server.
Oct 9 10:59:49 newnova vmunix: Digital UNIX V4.0F (Rev. 1229); Mon Oct

Netscape 4.5/Export, 13-Oct-98; (c) 1995-1998 Netscape Communications
I compiled the samba version: samba-2.0.7
with the gcc-compiler: Reading specs from
gcc version 2.95.2 19991024 (release)
At the moment I'am testing the functionality of the samba-server but I
have a problem with logging in to the swat-tool with the root-user. I
got a message which says:
Authorization failed. Retry ?. If a cancel this I get the next message:
401 Authorization Required You must be authenticated to use this service
If I log on with a different unix user everything works fine.
I made the necessarily changes to the /etc/services- and the
swat stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/samba/bin/swat swat
The strange thing is that when I change the user in the inetd.conf file
to a different user than root, I can connect to swat as root with no
Samba is also running on an other server and there swat works fine also
for root. I tried to find some differences between these servers but I
can't find anything.
Perhaps you can give me a clue ?
